Kaipara District Council's roads network provides accessibility to the residents and visitors within a safe and clean environment.
The services cover the provision and maintenance of the physical components; roads, footpaths, bridges and other structures (e.g. street furniture), lighting, drainage, traffic services and safety (e.g. signage), as well as the planning and management to ensure the network is safe and able to cope with future needs.
Council's Roads and Footpaths Asset consists of 1,574km of formed roads (455km sealed and 1,119km unsealed), 349 bridges, 94km of footpaths and walkways, 1,185 streetlights, 8,935 traffic signs, and 14,504 culverts. Included in the Asset Management are:
- The maintenance and construction of roads, pedestrian paths and accessways.

- The maintenance of traffic services including lighting, signs, roadmarking, road name plates and furniture.
