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.
- Building a roundabout at the intersection to reduce traffic congestion on Ratanui Road, which has been causing significant delays for drivers.
- Widening the footpath and installing crossing points on either side of the intersection for the large volume of pedestrians who cross there each day (including students heading to and from Paraparaumu College).
The works will run from Monday 15 July until early December, depending on the weather.
The road and footpaths will remain open for the duration of the works but there will be times when traffic lanes and sections of footpath will need to be closed. Stop/go operation will be used on the road for periods when only one lane is available, and pedestrian diversions and temporary footpaths will be provided when required. When possible the contractors will make two-way traffic available during busy periods – such as school pick up and drop-offs.
