'Sorry folks': Ring Road jam will be 'painful'

01:30, Feb 26 2013

Hamilton, prepare to stop your engines, there is another Ring Road traffic jam on its way, and this one promises to be 'painful'.

The Tramway Rd northern link onto Wairere Dr will be closed for about one hour this afternoon for its final sealing.

The work is expected to start from either 3pm or 4pm.

Traffic will be diverted along Carrs Rd and back to Powells Rd to access Wairere Drive.

A preemptive apology has already been posted on the Ring Road project's official Facebook page.

''Slightly painful but unavoidable, sorry folks,'' it says.
