Raumati Village Road Safety Work Could Start In Five Months

The Kapiti Coast Council has told KIN that work to make roads safer at Raumati Village could start in just five months time.

In answer to a question from KIN, the Council says:

‘We are proposing two lots of improvements this financial year (more than likely in late January 2021) – all going well.

‘The first lot of improvement works will take place at the corner of Alexander/ Matatua and Kowhai Grove.’ 

The Councvil says this will be done ‘in conjunction with improvement works at Victor and Rosetta Roads.’

More changes ahead

Safer roads for children

Councillor James Cootes, Transportation chair, says the safety improvements will enhance safety, particularly around intersections and crossing points used to access schools and shops.

“Some of our proposed changes for future years are more extensive and I’m sure will be of interest to the community – we want to know what you think so we can consider that in the future designs,” he says.

Major works ahead

KCDC Access and Transport Manager Glen O’Connor says this proposed future work is subject to funding from NZTA and Council and to further community input, and includes:

·       2021/22: A roundabout at Raumati Road, Matatua Road and Rosetta Road intersection and improvements at the intersection of Raumati Road and Margaret Road.

·       2022/23: Changes to Margaret Road once we can see how the changes at the new roundabout are working

And Cr Cootes adds: “The drop-in sessions are a great opportunity to delve into the detail on all the proposed work and to ask questions.” .
