Highway Renaming Delayed

July 19, 2018

The decision on renaming the district's original State Highway has been delayed following a hold up in it becoming a local road.


According to Stuff, A new name - or names - was meant to be chosen last year, but now the Kāpiti Coast District Council says it has decided to take its time.


Expressway integration project manager Vince Fallon says the choice could now be made later this year or early next year.


The project has been contentious for the council whose plan to split the continuous road into seven sections with seven Māori names was slammed as over-complicated.


Mr Fallon said the decision could not be made until work on the old highway was completed by the NZ Transport Agency.


The section of road, running from Raumati South to north of Waikanae has been rendered obsolete as a highway by the Kāpiti Expressway.
