Traffic Management for the Sri Durga Temple Event (Sunday 21st October 2018)
The Sri Durga Arts/Cultural & Education Centre located at 705-715 Neale Rd in Rockbank/Deanside will be hosting an event to celebrate Dussehra on Sunday 21st of October 2018 between 11am and 8pm.
Traffic Management will be in place from 1.30pm until 10.30pm to assist with the flow of Traffic during the peak event times.
Traffic travelling East on Neale Rd (approaching Hopkins Rd) will not be permitted to turn Right onto Hopkins Rd.
