Proposal to open and upgrade Kaiapoi Pa Road from Tiritiri Moana Drive, to Waikuku Beach Road. Now that Waikuku School has relocated to Pegasus Town and the new bus service programmed to use Kaiapoi Pa Road, increasing demand has led to the need to consider upgrading Kaiapoi Pa Road.

The project will involve opening the existing link at the western end of Tiritiri Moana Road to Kaiapoi Pa Road, and is being planned with the collaboration of Te Runanga o Ngai Tuahuriri to ensure the recognition and protection of cultural sensitivities. Throughout the project, focus will be on the preservation of the rural nature of Kaiapoi Pa Road and its surroundings where possible. The main aim of this road improvement is for traffic to and from Waikuku Beach, including the bus service and school traffic, to be able to use local roads instead of travelling on State Highway 1. To enable two-way traffic, Kaiapoi Pa Road will be widened to 6 metres and sealed with appropriate safety management measures, including signage and appropriate speed limit.

Preeces Road will remain unchanged. Access to Preeces Road will be from Kaiapoi Pa Road with an emphasis on use by farm vehicles and stock, pedestrians, cyclists and horses. The use of Preeces Road as an access to State Highway 1 from Pegasus will be discouraged.

The Metro bus service between Waikuku Beach and Pegasus Town will use Kaiapoi Pa Road, Tiritiri Moana Road and Lakeside Drive. Give way signs will be installed on Kaiapoi Pa Road at the intersection with Waikuku Beach Road, and also on Stokes Road at the intersection with Kaiapoi Pa Road.

Although some aspects of this proposal, such as the route and the road width are subject to engineering and financial constraints, the Council is interested in consultation with the community and is encouraging feedback, which will be considered in their final planning and detailed design processes. The Council is particularly interested in the community’s views with regards to:
