Media Release: Thames Coromandel District Council
The worst of the weather has cleared, with 470mm of rain having accumulated at the Pinnacles during this storm, however we will continue to get squalls and wind for the next few days.
Road closures remain, and stop/go traffic management is in place across the Thames Coromandel District so please drive with caution and be respectful of the contractors who are working hard to clear the roads as soon as possible.
State Highway 25A (Kopu-Hikuai Road) is still closed due to a slip near Puketui Valley Road and unlikely to re-open today.
Please stick to the main State Highway detour.
Hot Water Beach Road is closed due to flooding.
Hikuai Settlement Road is closed again as the tide is coming in and the rain has not stopped.
Colville Road - two slips mean the road is only open to one lane in places (2.8km south of Papa Aroha and 2.9km north of Waitete Bay).
