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.
There are currently no weather warnings for our district.
- See MetService Severe weather for further information.
- Now's a great time to clear your gutters and spouting of leaves!
Note: we share MetService weather warnings, but not weather watches. See MetService Weather warnings and watches for how these differ.
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.
- Tutanekai Street, closed between Parakai Street and Arawhata Road, 6 November–20 December
The Tutanekai Street sewer pipe is being replaced between 48 to 56 Tutanekai Street because it is at risk of collapsing and is causing the road in this area to dip. Tutanekai Street will be fully closed between Parakai Street and Arawhata Road. Traffic will be detoured along Parakai Street and Coleman Street. The work is complicated because the pipe sits four metres deep under a 33kV power cable. For any queries, please contact Dave Murtagh (027 442 2971) or Nathan Hodges (021 368 496) from Action Civil Ltd. Thank you for your patience and cooperation while this important project is completed.
