Road closures

All roads and state highways in Porirua City open except:

Travellers will detour via the Titahi Bay southbound off-ramp which will be signposted. Please note that the wet weather forecast for earlier in the week may disrupt the week’s schedule and cause postponement of these works which will resume at the next available slot in the state highway works programme.

  • Wednesday 21st February, 7pm-5.30 am: Pukerua Bay rail overbridge - stop/go traffic control for bridge joint replacements

Traffic advice

  • Well-maintained roads are an important part of keeping people safe.  While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. 
  • Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. 
  • If you’re driving around the Wellington region, roadworks on the state highway network may affect your travel plans.

Please phone the Council on (04) 237 5089 to report any concerns in your street so we can respond.
