RMS will be conducting works in the Manples area today.
Similar to the works that have taken place at the USP Roundabout and Dark Corner, tomorrow ’s works are in preparation for the asphalt phase of the project.
Due to the nature of the works, and for the safety of road users, RMS will be implementing road closures and diversions from 7am to 5pm.
Pending on direction, vehicles will be detoured via the Namburu Road at Esah or the Manples Market at the Pakaroa Road.
Heavy vehicles will be managed accordingly by traffic controllers and RMS will be granting access to businesses in the area. RMS also encourage shoppers to buy fresh fruit and vegetables from the Mamas at Manples market, who have been extremely patient while works continue.
Pedestrians will be able to pass through via the newly laid footpaths.
RMS apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to road users and asks for everyone’s understanding, patience and cooperation at this time.
