Following NZTA's public announcement about consultation on the Roads of National Significance in August 2009 the Kāpiti Coast District Council commissioned considerable expert analysis and advice in the course of formulating its position on the NZTA proposals. Topics covered included traffic and transportation issues, economic impacts, urban design and land use issues, social and amenity effects and ecological effects. Additionally, consideration has been given to national regional and local strategies and policies, as well as legislative requirements.
The Kāpiti Coast District Council's submission on the consultation options was presented to the NZTA Board on 30 October 2009.
The Council has taken a strategic view in its submission. The focus was on identifying the best long term outcome for the District that still meets the needs of the national transport corridor.
KCDC reiterated its view that a combined package of transport investment will meet the national transport requirements and minimise adverse community effects. The Council believes the most appropriate packages is as follows:
The Council's submission accepted the need for a bypass at Ōtaki, but proposed some changes to the route and the intersections to improve the outcomes for the Ōtaki economy and for local residents.
It is the Council's view these investment actions would contribute to the Minister of Transport's goal of better road transport options between Wellington Airport and Levin with a design horizon of 50 years, and meet NZTA's strategies and priorities as set out in its Statement of Intent 2009 - 2012.
