Coromandel road users asked to avoid State Highway 25a and Kopu area

Road users travelling in the Coromandel are being urged to avoid using State Highway 25a and State Highway 25 near Kopu after two separate crashes.

State Highway 25a is closed between Kopu and Hikuai (pictured below). State Highway 25 is closed between Kopu Bridge and Hauraki Rd (not pictured).

NZ Transport Agency Journey Manager, Liam Ryan, says both detours involve people travelling through Paeroa which could add an extra 40 minutes to a trip.

He says significant delays are expected and all road users should avoid the area or delay their travel.
