Chipseal Failure to be Fixed

April 16, 2018

Kapiti Coast District Council say they expect to fix the road seal on Mazengarb and Guildford Drive in the middle of this week,  when the weather improves.


Over 25 service requests about these works have been lodged so far.


The council has asked their contractors to explain what has caused the recent resealing failure on these roads in Paraparaumu.


Council’s Group Manager for Infrastructure, Sean Mallon, says Council’s maintenance contractor for chipseal works, Downer, have given an initial explanation that is based on poor weather being the cause of the failure.


Resealing work is sensitive to temperature changes and general weather conditions.


Mallons says “As at midday today we’ve received just over 25 service requests about these works and we’re aware there may be further people who have contacted Downer directly,” Mr Mallon says.


“Service requests include a few vehicle-related issues like damaged windscreens and stone chips. We’re aware that a number of residents have also requested bitumen in garages and vehicles be cleaned.”


Mr Mallon says Downers are responsible for dealing with any claims relating to damages people believe are a result of the failed chipseal. They should contact Downers directly or can contact the Council who will follow up on their behalf.
