Improving traffic flow and safety at the Ratanui/Mazengarb intersection
What we’re doing
Over the coming months, we’ll carry out work that will improve traffic flow and safety at the Ratanui Road/Mazengarb Road intersection – an increasingly busy road in Paraparaumu and an important road linking the Waikanae and Paraparaumu communities.
Towards the middle of the year we’ll start work on a roundabout at the intersection to reduce traffic congestion on Ratanui Road, which has been causing significant delays for drivers. It’s also a busy intersection for students heading to and from Paraparaumu College, so we’ll be widening the footpath and installing crossing points on either side of the intersection.
The tender for this project closed on 15 May. We hope to confirm the successful contractor by the end of May. We’re aiming to start construction in mid-June, and expect the project to take 4-5 months, weather dependent. We’ll also be looking to time any major detours or closures for the July school holidays, to minimise disruption.
Before construction starts, we need to locate all the underground services. So over the next few weeks, starting Monday 13 May, you’ll see our contractors onsite doing this work. There's also gas line works happening in the same vicinity, so please take care if you're in the area.
Once the works are fully underway, we’ll send out a fortnightly email update about the works. If you’d like to sign up to receive this update, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 486 486 and provide your email address. You can also keep up-to-date with progress by following our Facebook and website pages and/or signing up to our weekly e-newsletter.
There will be some disruption while these works are carried out, but the improvements we’re making will better serve the needs of all users. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch: email@example.com or phone 0800 486 486.
