The Manawatu Events Equipment Trust is a charitable trust that was established in 2003 to assist any sporting or public organisation with their traffic management requirements for events on public roads. Hire for commercial purposes is not permitted.
The main aim of the MEET is to provide all the necessary equipment at a nominal cost to any organisation whether local or from anywhere in New Zealand.
All of the equipment available from the MEET fully complies with the legal requirements for road signs, cones and hi-viz jackets etc for Transit NZ, Ministry of Transport, City and District Councils. A purpose built trailer is available for transporting of the equipment.
The equipment is available for hire anywhere in New Zealand, although the hirer is responsible for the arranging and payment of transport from and return to Palmerston North.
To ensure that the hire fees are kept as low as possible we are continually seeking donations, services or equipment.
There are currently four Trustees which manage the MEET and are able to provide organisations with extensive support and advice on traffic management.
The MEET strongly recommends that all hirers familiarise themselves with their legal requirements and attend Traffic Controller and Site Traffic Management Supervisor courses.
To ensure that we can provide you with the necessary equipment it is vital that you can contact us and arrange the hire as early as possible. Councils and Transit NZ require at least 2 weeks notice of events.
