MacKays to Peka Peka

Updated: 26 November 2014

The MacKays to Peka Peka route is an important part of the Wellington Northern Corridor which runs from Wellington Airport to Levin.

The Wellington Northern Corridor is one of seven ‘roads of national significance’ that the Government has identified as essential state highways which require upgrading to reduce congestion, improve safety and support economic growth in New Zealand.


Team discussions.

Work is well underway on the MacKays to Peka Peka section of Wellington’s Kapiti Expressway (M2PP). Following extensive community consultation and a design process which started in 2010, M2PP gained resource consent from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in early 2013.

The $630-million project will deliver approximately 18km of four-lane expressway through Paraparaumu and Waikanae, including a new bridge over the Waikanae River. The new route will take approximately four years to build and will improve safety, reduce congestion and provide more reliable journey times into and through the Kapiti Coast.

Mackays to Peka Peka is part of the Wellington Northern Corridor, which is made up of a series of roads that are being significantly improved over the next 10 years:
