INTERCHANGE

Kapiti News - - News -

Pos­si­ble plans for a new interchange at Peka Peka are still be­ing ex­plored by the NZ Trans­port Agency. Project de­liv­ery se­nior man­ager Chris Hunt said, “The busi­ness case was only re­cently com­pleted and we are still re­view­ing the find­ings. Once we have fin­ished our in­ter­nal review, we ex­pect to meet with Peka Peka and Te Horo res­i­dents to dis­cuss find­ings of the busi­ness case in Jan­uary/Fe­bru­ary.” Cur­rently there is a par­tial interchange but there has been com­mu­nity sup­port for a full interchange es­pe­cially as the Peka Peka to Otaki Ex­press­way is be­ing built.

North­bound driv­ers want­ing to get to Peka Peka on the Mack­ays to Peka Peka Ex­press­way have to ei­ther exit at Waikanae or carry on north, turn left into Te Ha­pua Rd, turn around, wait for both lanes to be clear, get back onto the ex­press­way and head south where there’s a side lane that loops over the ex­press­way to Peka Peka. The agency hoped to re­lease the re­port pub­licly when it met with res­i­dents in the new year.
