Project introduction

With the Mackays to Peka Peka Expressway now complete, the process of revocation removes the status of state highway from the old SH1 and its management under the NZ Transport Agency, transferring it to the Kāpiti Coast District Council as a local road.

Purpose

The NZ Transport Agency and the Kāpiti Coast District Council are working together to change the status of the main road that runs through Raumati, Paraparaumu and Waikanae, from a state highway to a local road.

The Expressway that opened in February 2017 now functions as State Highway 1 and as a result, the 13.5km section between Poplar Avenue and Peka Peka Link Road will revert from a state highway to a local road.

Legislation requires the Transport Agency to also transfer responsibility of the 13.5km section between Poplar Avenue and Peka Peka Link Road to the Kāpiti Coast District Council. Before this happens, the Transport Agency must ensure the corridor is fit for purpose as a local road. This is known as the revocation process.

Before revocation, the Transport Agency will carry out some works on the 13.5km section between Poplar Avenue and Peka Peka Link Road to:

  • strengthen the resilience of the Kāpiti Coast,
  • ensure the corridor:
    • is more accessible for all transport modes,
    • remains a viable alternative route if the Kāpiti Expressway is closed,
    • connects communities and key regional areas/facilities where people live, work, and recreate
    • creates safer journeys through the local network.

M2PP revocation zones

The work for Zones 8b to 10, north of Waikanae to Peka Peka, was completed in early 2019. Work on the remaining sections will begin in January 2020. The first sections to be started will be zones 1 and 2, Poplar Avenue to Ihakara Street. Letters will be sent to those directly affected to notify them of the likely start of works. The work will be delivered in stages to minimise disruption and enable efficient project delivery.

We appreciate your patience as works get underway. If you have any questions, contact the project team via email at M2PPrevocation@nzta.govt.nz
