Now that the Mackays to Peka Peka Expressway is operational our communities are experiencing a wide range of benefits:

  • Reduced congestion on local roads, as traffic is transferred to the Expressway
  • Shorter and more reliable travel times for Expressway traffic by avoiding urban traffic lights and speed limits
  • Modern road design resulting in safer trips to and through Kāpiti
  • Improved access to Wellington’s port, CBD, interisland ferry terminals, airport and hospital
  • Kāpiti residents and businesses are the first to benefit from the Wellington Northern Corridor improvements
  • A second route and a more resilient road network in the event of crashes or natural disasters
  • More jobs and better access jobs in Kāpiti and beyond, and
  • Innovation in the way the project was delivered is setting new standards for the construction industry in New Zealand and beyond.
