Media Release: Thames Coromandel District Council
Following high tide and steady rain Thames Coromandel Civil Defence Controller Garry Towler is urging everyone to avoid travel again on the South Eastern seaboard roads tonight.
“We know people may be trying to head home as the school holidays come to an end, but please wait until tomorrow,” he says. “Please, do NOT attempt to drive through flood water.”
State Highway 25A (Kopu-Hikuai) remains closed due to two large slips and is expected to remain closed overnight.
SH25 Whangamata to Hikuai is now closed due between Hikuai and McBeth Rd and is expected to remain closed overnight (pictured).
Due to high tide SH 25 Hikuai to Whitianga and Hikuai Settlement Rd remains closed and may open once the tide recedes (see details on how to stay up-to-date below). However we ask that you please avoid unnecessary travel tonight.
