SH25 expected to be back to two lanes later today


Contractors are currently repairing a hole on State Highway 25, Coromandel, near the northern exit from Thames township.

The NZ Transport Agency State Highway Manager, Waikato/Bay of Plenty, Kaye Clark, says the hole is about 2 metres deep and 1.5 metres across.  Mrs Clark says a single lane detour in place is not expected to cause significant delays for motorists and NZTA expects the hole to be filled and the road re-opened to two lanes again later this afternoon.
