As works continue in the Manples area, RMS stresses for motorists to remain patient with the altered traffic conditions.

“We want to remind drivers to slow down, pay attention to instructions from roadside workers and abide by temporary roads signs,” says RMS Health Safety and Environment (HSE) Representative Gideon Tabius.

“We insist that road users consider the safety of our staff working in the area, which includes traffic management personnel.

“All motorists have a responsibility to exercise caution and good judgment on the roads, especially in construction zones. Everyone deserves to make it home at the end of their shift.”

RMS Community Liaison Officer, George Tambe, emphasizes the importance of obeying road work signage and remaining cautious when approaching the work area.

“We understand that driving through the Manples area is unavoidable for some members of the public, and we apologize for the inconvenience,” he says.

“We encourage patience and recommend allowing extra time to reach your destination. The work is focusing on improving the road and drainage system in the area.”

RMS applauds motorists that have obeyed the traffic signage and the diversion.

“On behalf of RMS, we thank the community and obedient motorists for their ongoing patience as we aim to complete the works in Manples as scheduled,” says Mr. Tambe.

The excavation of the detention basin, located adjacent to the Manples HXM, will continue through the week and coincide with the underground drainage works. The detention basin and the underground drainage will capture and channel storm water that normally end up over the road, causing flooding.

Motorists driving through the Manples area will continue to encounter traffic delays due to lane restrictions and diversions. Outbound traffic will continue to be diverted around Manples and inbound traffic will be directed through the worksite with signage and traffic personnel.

RMS encourages any members of the public to contact their office if there are any concerns or queries in relation to the work at Manples.
