Stop/Go control will be in place at the intersection of SH39 and SH3 in Otorohanga (marked with a 1 on the map) at approximately 11am to allow the southbound funeral procession to pass through.
There will also be Stop/Go control with a 30km/hr speed restriction at the intersection of Oparure Road and SH3 (marked with a 2 on the map) between 11.30am and 12.30pm.
Then from 2pm funeral traffic will head to Te Kuiti, making a stop at the Te Kuiti Marae, before heading 5km south of Te Kuiti (marked with a 3 on the map) where there will again be Stop/Go control and a 30km/hr speed restriction.
