Why is time standing still?
Time has stopped in Matamata, well the town clock has anyway.
Unlike a watch or wall clock that simply need new batteries, a town clock on a state highway and in the centre of a roundabout does come with its challenges.
Fixing the town clock needs to be done in partnership with Worksafe NZ and will also require a traffic management plan to ensure traffic continues to flow easily and our contractors are safe.
Provided the weather plays its part and all contractors are available, the work is scheduled for 30 August.
