Kaipara Roads

Roads connect our businesses, marae and our community.

We use them to get our food to market and for tourists to enjoy all our district has to offer.

Improving our road network will increase the comfort and safety of travel on unsealed roads, and make businesses more competitive by reducing the cost of transport. 

The road upgrade project includes improving the safety and resilience of the current road network by:
  • Establishing best practice standards and processes for maintaining unsealed roads
  • Upgrading priority unsealed roads
  • Sealing 10km of Poutō Road (Phase One)
  • Completing the detailed design for a further 11 km of Poutō Road (Phase Two)
  • Upgrading key bridges to 50 tonne capacity
  • Sealing 1.5 km of Waipoua River Road, and installing traffic lights
