Raumati Road is a major community connector road in our local roading network. The Raumati Road Corridor is approximately 1.8 kilometres long and runs between Raumati Beach to the west and State Highway One to the east. It is a busy road corridor with a mix of residential properties, educational facilities, commercial activities and undeveloped land on either side of the corridor.
Now that Kapiti College's changes to Raumati Road (as a result of a new one-way entry into its grounds) are underway, we can confirm our series of improvements to the road which will be carried out over the next eight months. The aim is to address the growing traffic volumes and make it easier and safer for people to move through this area.
In October 2015 Council engaged Opus International Consultants to conduct a study to help inform a long-term Raumati Road Corridor Strategy and a forward programme of transport improvements.
A public consultation process was held throughout November and December 2015. It sought community and stakeholder feedback on transport issues within the corridor and proposed cycle facilities and intersection upgrades.
The Raumati Road Corridor Community Consultation Review 2015 report is now complete and can be viewed here.
The findings from the Raumati Road Corridor Community Consultation Review 2015 report are now being used to inform the Council’s forward programme of Raumati Road corridor transport improvements.

Council has agreed to progress a number of Raumati Road transport improvements in response to the findings of the Raumati Road Corridor Community Consultation Review 2015 report.
The following improvements were discussed and agreed at the Paraparaumu-Raumati Community Board meeting on 16 February 2016.
