Traffic congestion is expected on Rarotonga next week as road closures will be in place for celebrations of 200 years of the Gospel.
There will be a road closure at Avarua Roundabout on
Tuesday morning to accommodate the event as attendees will make their way from
the Avarua Harbour side to Takuvaine Rd, and a walk to the Takuvaine Kapua’anga
Meeting House (Avaiki Tautau).
The procession will mean the complete closure of the
Main Rd through the roundabout and Takuvaine Rd to the Back Rd.
Emergency services only will be allowed access, if
Police have advised the programme times, and the
congestion of traffic and people, around the event.
The arrival of the Gospel delegation by vaka at Avarua
Harbour from Avatiu is scheduled for 9am on Tuesday.
The ceremonial activity is expected to run until the
appropriate time for the procession to cross and walk to the Meeting House by
Police officers will be supervising the traffic
movement, and will ease the flow as soon as the procession allows.
