We will soon be starting work on installing a signalised pedestrian crossing outside Coastlands' newest retail pod (Tākiri House) at the Iver Trask Place and Rimu Road t-intersection.
Installation of the crossing forms part of our work to establish Rimu Road as the main street – part of the vision for the Paraparaumu town centre transformation.
This crossing will make it easier and safer for people to get between Coastlands, the civic precinct, Kāpiti Road and beyond.
The town centres transformation project is a 14-year programme of work.
Construction of the new crossing is planned to start in the New Year 2018 and will take about six months to complete subject to dry weather.
Town centres are at the heart of our communities. We want Paraparaumu town centre to be vibrant, diverse and thriving – a place where people want to spend time and where they can access the services they need safely.
Transforming our town centres will take time and means working together with business, investors and the community. The Council cannot do this on its own.
Coastlands has built an exciting new two-storey retail space in the carpark adjoining Rimu Road. Known as Tākiri House it will be a bustling hub of retail and café activity helping to link Coastlands to the civic precinct.
The Council and Coastlands continues to work together to share and align ideas for developments that will transform Rimu Road into the main street of Paraparaumu.
This retail expansion supports the delivery of the Council’s masterplan for transforming Paraparaumu town centre.
Work has been scheduled over a 14-year programme of activity.
