Cafe hit hard by Manawatu Gorge closureSave
For Rebecca Algie the Manawatu Gorge slip has hit hard.
The 27 year-old owner of the Bridge Cafe says her business relies on people who are using the gorge stopping for a bite to eat
"We would probably get 150 people through per day, and now it's 25 - 30."
Ms Algie is angry she had to find out via social media that there had been a slip at the gorge.
The nearby school got a call from NZTA, but she wasn't shown the same courtesy
"Nothing at all, not one phone call. Not one."
It is not the first time the gorge closures have affected her business
In 2011, she was forced to close for nine months.
She says the hardest part was telling her staff they were out of a job.
