Other roading information
Helpful information on bridge limits, contractor complaints, emergencies, events management (temporary), PP2Ō Expressway and Transmission Gully, fencing, graffiti, letter boxes (moving of), State Highway 1 issues, and wandering stock.
Our local bridges display bridge loads and limits and are inspected annually by our contractor. For overweight permits, go to NZTA's Overweight permits.
Kāpiti Coast District Council will arrange for the yellow road markings of bus stops. Everything else relating to bus stops, signs, timetables, shelters etc. is the responsibility of Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC).
Events management (temporary)
Temporary event management forms can be downloaded from Resource consents. Event organisers need to give Council 8–10 weeks notice of their event, to cover the mandatory 42 days public notice advertising.
If a fence is between a privately owned property and a public reserve, the cost of repair of said fence is the responsibility of the private property owner. The reserve is classified as 'public property' and is therefore exempt under the Fencing Act 1978.
We don't remove graffiti from private properties.
Community Graffiti Clean-up Packs can be borrowed from the Council’s service centres in Ōtaki, Waikanae and Paraparaumu. These kits can be borrowed for a week at a time - more information can be found below. Each tool box contains:
- graffiti remover spray
- two sets of disposable gloves
- small roller
- large paint brush
- one small high-vis jacket – Yellow
- one XL high-vis jacket – Orange
- two large rags
- Resene voucher
- wet Paint banner.
The packs are being provided by Keep NZ Beautiful, Ministry of Justice, Keep Waikanae Beautiful and Kāpiti Coast District Council.
If you want to remove, replace or install a new letter box you need to be aware that this could affect any underground services. So we can check for underground services, contact us before placing the letter box.
Our position is that road mirrors are not normally recommended as they can be:
- misleading at night when reflecting headlights
- damaged by vandals or by accident
- affected by glare from sunlight, low sun angles, and rain
- sometimes obscured by condensation and dirt
- confusing for non-local motorists
- difficult to site satisfactorily
- misleading due to difficulties of judging speed and distance
- distracting, where a driver is concentrating on the mirror only and oblivious to their immediate surroundings such as pedestrians right next to them.
We would only use a mirror as a last resort after all other options to improve visibility have been discounted. These options include removal of vegetation, trimming of a bank, realignment or removal of a structure such as a fence, and relocation or realignment of a driveway, accessway or junction.
Contact us to request a mirror on the road.
