Police callouts

Police responded to a shoplifting incident in the Masterton area on Bruce St at around 5.45pm on Tuesday. A vehicle failed to stop for police after being signalled to do so on SH2 near Tauwharenikau. A spokesperson said police abandoned pursuit due to the manner of driving from the vehicle. Enquiries into the whereabouts of the vehicle and its driver are ongoing.



The New Zealand Transport Agency [NZTA] wants to remind people of roadworks starting next Monday and running for five weeks at the Northern end of Carterton. Around 500 metres of State Highway 2 through Carterton’s main thoroughfare will be repaired, which is similar to work recently undertaken on Chapel Street in Masterton. NZTA said road closures, speed restrictions, night and day works, parking restrictions, and local road detours will all be part of the project. This includes access restrictions for residents and businesses between Rhodes St and Andersons Line. More info is on the nzta.govt.nz website.
