Porirua City is at the orange setting of the traffic lights protection framework. This means some changes to the way we work and live, as protections are in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community. Find out more
Porirua City maintains around 251 km of roading network through an annual resurfacing programme and on-going maintenance.
Take a look at this year's resealing programme
Our programme of footpath repairs is focused on dealing with the most serious issues first.
The programme is based on a review of all city footpaths (carried out in 2020), which rated the faults found, plus ongoing inspection work by our maintenance contractor Downer, and through resident requests.
This work helps us target funding to the areas with the worst faults.
If you are concerned about a footpath fault, please let us know. (See Please Fix It below)
A berm or verge is usually a grass area between the road and your property or business. In most parts of Porirua City, we encourage the property owner or resident to maintain the berm outside their property. Council does maintain some berm areas in the city, such as reserves, the city centre and playgrounds.
Whether its one street light or a whole row of them, we can help organise a repair.
Help us keep our streets and roads safe. If you see a pothole, damage or hazards on a road, whether it is in your area or another part of the city, report it to us and we’ll take care of it.
There are a number of ways to report something that needs fixing:
Our road network covers 295 kilometres of sealed roads, 23 bridges, five footbridges, almost 400 kilometres of kerb and channel, four kilometres of culverts, 44,500 traffic signs, three sets of traffic signals and 14 car parking lots.
We monitor all construction and repair works on the city’s roads by other council's, utilities companies, contractors and the public. The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) manages State Highway 1 running north-south through the middle of the city and State Highway 58, which runs east-west and connects State Highway 1 with the Hutt Valley.
