Local communities played a huge role in planning for the MacKays to Peka Peka Expressway. They were involved during construction through a community liaison group, neighbourhood forums, events organised by the project team, site tours, an information centre, presentations, newsletters and the internet. That involvement continues through the community liaison and neighbourhood groups that continue to meet now the Expressway is operating.
Some of the highlights of this project’s community liaison have been:
A community open day to engage with the team and walk over the Kāpiti Road Bridge.

Involvement with Big Digs at Raumati Beach, giving children a chance to operate a little digger
Holding community “peat grabs”, providing excavated peat to local gardeners
Monthly bus tours showing the progress being made in otherwise hard-to-access work sites.
The Alliance has also contributed to community causes:
