Paremata Roundabout Upgrade - Signals 2019

NZTA's contractor commenced the installation of cabling to install traffic metering signals to the northern approach to the roundabout in early April. There will be some disruption to traffic (hopefully outside of peak hours and at different times!) along the inside lanes heading north and south. Completion is planned by mid-July 2019.

NZTA has now released information on what changes are being made and what impact it will have on traffic flow through the roundabout. For more information have a look at the PDF file on this page.

Paremata Train Station Carpark Upgrade 2019

Residents will be well aware of commuter parking difficulties in or close to the Paremata train station. The shortage of parking spaces at the station is causing congestion along Paremata Cresent and around the school, and the northern part of Papakowhai Road. And this unsatisfactory situation has increased since Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) changed the train fare structure this year. 

Paremata Residents Association has been lobbying GWRC to develop more parking spaces at the southern end of the station for the last 2 years or more. But GWRC have been reluctant to go ahead due to difficulty and safety concerns for vehicles leaving the station. However GWRC has decided to go ahead with the carpark expansion around the same time that metering signals are to be installed at the Paremata Roundabout by NZTA.

Contractors started on site at the train station in early April on the construction of around 70 new carparking spaces to the south of the existing carpark. This work is planned to be completed by mid-July, around the same time the roundabout works are also completed.

This should relieve much (hopefully all) of the congestion, which will provide welcome relief for commuters and make it safer around Paremata School.
