Kāpiti Lights upgrade

Our work to upgrade the Kāpiti Lights area aims to make it more pedestrian friendly which will help create a setting that supports new and existing shops to thrive. The improvements we are making, with the support of Coastlands and Kāpiti Lights property owners, will provide:

  • better connections between Rimu Road, Coastlands and Kāpiti Lights
  • better pedestrian access and spaces for people to sit and relax
  • quality lighting to improve the environment and safety.

We are delivering the upgrade in three parts; Coastlands Parade (laneway) upgrade; a Coastlands/Kāpiti Lights connection; and SH1 entrance upgrade (linking to the transport hub).

Construction work on the Coastlands Parade laneway started in early June and will involve digging, paving, planting and other general improvements. You can view the plan for this area here.

The upgrade of the Coastlands/Kāpiti Lights connection started in late June and involves creating a public space with planting, paving and seating. You can view the plan for this area here.

Work on the SH1 entrance aims to better connect the railway station with Kāpiti Lights and the town centre.  This work is planned for late 2017.

Hours of work

Hours of work will generally be between 7.30am and 5pm weekdays and Saturdays.

Open for business

Businesses in the Kāpiti Lights areas are open throughout construction so pop in and check out our progress.
