Reporting road issues
State highways and local roads make up the region’s road network. Maintenance, construction, upgrades and management of traffic issues are the responsibility of Road Controlling Authorities, either the local council or the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).
In the greater Wellington region, NZTA manages the following state highways: SH1 from Wellington Airport to Otaki, SH2 from Ngauranga through the Hutt Valley to Wairarapa, SH58 between the Hutt Valley and Paremata and SH53 between Featherston and Martinborough.
All other local roads including footpaths and road reserve are usually managed by local councils.
Road hazards can include (but are not limited to) potholes, broken glass, illegal parking, broken traffic lights or any other factor that make our roads unsafe. Please report any road hazards to the approporiate authority.
