Kāpiti Road improvements
Shared pathway completion
Shared pathway completion December 2019
The final stretch of work to compete the shared pathway on Kāpiti Road is due to be finished on Friday 20 December (subject to weather).
This will mark the end of the project which began back in 2017 when we completed the first stage of the upgrade of Kāpiti Road from Arawhata Road to Ngahina Street.
This project has been a joint venture with Council’s Stride ‘n’ Ride initiative.
Our 2019 work has included widening the pathway, relocating transformer boxes and a power pole, a batter slope in the swamp area and the installation of the shared pathway.
We’ve also taken the opportunity to do a few other improvements including:
- Indenting the bus stop (west of Arawhata Road) to improve traffic flows and safety
- Minor road widening work to create an extra lane to tie in with the earlier Expressway work.
There will be a new road layout to accommodate the extra lane on Kāpiti Road.
These photos below show the results of the first stage of Kāpiti Road shared path work.
The improvement work on Kāpiti Road recognises the importance of providing safer pedestrian and cycle access to the centre of the town.
