Mazengarb/Ratanui roundabout update

We’re making real headway on our upgrade to improve traffic flow and safety at the Ratanui Road /Mazengarb Road intersection in Paraparaumu. With the central roundabout complete we’re now working on realigning the corners. In the next few weeks we’ll begin widening the lane on the southern side to make more room for vehicles navigating the intersection. Thank you everyone for your patience.
