Part of SH 25 closed overnight

The Transport Agency’s Regional Performance Manager Karen Boyt says people should continue to check our travel website before leaving for their journey and report any flooding to our 0800 number.

“We still need people to check their journeys before they leave and take extra care when they are on the roads in the Coromandel.

“We will assess things again in the morning but we are expecting there will still be some closures that will be in place until tomorrow evening,” Ms Boyt says.

The following roads are still affected:
