Media Release: NZTA

Acting Waikato System Manager Rob Campbell says the heavy rainfall over the Coromandel Peninsula in the past 24 hours, combined with the incoming tide, has resulted in significant flooding in the area of Hikuai Settlement Road.

State Highway 25 is closed at the intersection with Hikuai Settlement Road due to flooding.

“Please delay unnecessary travel where possible. Those who are unable to delay their travel will need to use alternative routes.”

Mr Campbell says water levels could continue to rise with further rain and the incoming tide, and encouraged motorists to stay alert.

“Stay safe and watch for surface flooding, slips and fallen trees and branches.”
