Calls to extend shared path from Peka Peka to Otaki
March 2017
Kapiti Expressway shared pathway

The 18 kilometre shared pathway beside the new Mackays to Peka Peka Expressway only opened in February, but it's already a hit with Kapiti Coast locals.

The pathway takes you from Raumati South up to Peka Peka, passing new wetlands and over local roads, linking up the communities of Raumati, Paraparaumu and Waikanae in a way they never have before. It makes it far easier for everyone to get around the area safely by bike and on foot and is a real magnet for visitors. To the South it links to the popular shared path through Queen Elizabeth Park, but to the North there is nothing.
Low Carbon Kapiti and Cycle Action Kapiti want to see a similar facility continued for 10 kilometres north to Otaki as part of the planned Expressway there, but at present there is no provision in the Transport Agency's plans for this at all.
Otaki is cut off by bike and foot unless you are daring enough to take on the State Highway and narrow bridge. This is just not good enough. It's not fair on Otaki residents and it is neglecting a huge tourism opportunity. A petition has been started to rectify this.

Sign this petition if you agree and want to see the shared path extended from Peka Peka to Otaki as part of the Expressway project.
