We look after Porirua City’s roading network and make sure it is safe for people to use. We also manage traffic flows within the city and keep streets clean. Find out more about our current roading projects.
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.
Porirua is experiencing and planning for additional considerable growth. Annual residential growth is over twice the historical average, and there are major investments in the region such as the Eastern Porirua Regeneration Project, Porirua Adventure Park, Kenepuru Landing, Plimmerton Farms etc.
This growth, and the completion of major projects such as Transmission Gully will increase the pressure on our roading and transport network.
Porirua City Council (Council) has undertaken significant long-term planning with a Growth Strategy 2018 to 2048 and a Long-Term Infrastructure Strategy 2018 to 2038.
To accompany these and Council’s other planning initiatives, this procurement strategy outlines how Council will plan and procure the delivery of projects and services to support the transport network.
