Kāpiti Coast District Council is encouraging the district’s residents to get ready to express themselves at the Kāpiti Coast ExpressDay on Saturday 18 February.

Corporate Services Manager Wayne Maxwell says the Council will be there on the day to see the expressway before it opens to traffic and to celebrate the completion of this project alongside the Kāpiti Coast community.

Walk or go by bus

“We’ve been on the Mackays to Peka Peka journey alongside our community right from its inception and welcome the decision to let the community walk or bus the five kilometre expressway route between Te Roto Drive in Paraparaumu and Te Moana Road in Waikanae.”

The Council has adopted ‘Express yourself’ as its theme for the day and Mr Maxwell says the Council will have marquees located at both the Te Roto Drive and Te Moana Road site entrances.

“There’ll be something for everyone in our marquees and we’re really looking forward to being part of the day and hearing our communities’ thoughts on how the expressway will benefit our district.”
