In recent times, the Kāpiti Coast District has experienced increasingly regular and significant weather events. This page will keep our community updated on what's happening with our services due to maintenance or through weather events, from road closures to communities and facilities impacted, and what to do if you need to report incidents or events, or need help.
Sandbags, sand and empty bags are available for anyone living in flood-prone areas. You can collect these from the Council depot in Fytfield Place, Paraparaumu.
If a road is not listed in this section, it is open.
- Ōtaki Gorge Road, Ōtaki – partially closed.
See Ōtaki Gorge Road slip for more information.
None at this time.
- Kāpiti Road, one lane eastbound only between Old State Highway 1/Amohia Street and Rimu Road (no turn into Kāpiti Road from Old State Highway 1), 28 August–end December
The Amohia stormwater upgrade project has now moved onto Kāpiti Rd. This means traffic between Old SH1 and Rimu Rd will be restricted to one lane for eastbound traffic (heading towards the hills), and no access for westbound traffic (heading towards the beach). This will be in place for up to four months, and will cause traffic delays. Our crews are working double shifts to finish this work as quickly as possible. See Amohia Street stormwater upgrade for more on this mahi.
- Paraparaumu Beach, Percival Road/Winton Street/Te Kupe Road area, 7 August–27 September
We'll be upgrading stormwater sumps and pipes in the Percival Road, Winton Street and Te Kupe Road area of Paraparaumu Beach for two weeks from Monday 7 August to Friday 15 September, weather permitting.
We'll have traffic management in place and, at certain times, a stop/go or traffic lights will be operating. Bus stops along Te Kupe Road may also be affected at times, so please follow signs and our crews' directions.
These upgrades will improve road conditions in this area, as the current sumps and pipes are contributing to potholes and sinkage in the road’s surface.
