SH25 just south of Coromandel township closed to heavy vehicles due to an underslip


The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists to expect delays on State Highway 25 just south of Coromandel township due to an underslip.

Underslip on SH25

The slip, below the highway, occurred at approximately 4pm yesterday. One lane of the road is currently closed and stop/go traffic management is in place.

Geotechnical experts are assessing the site today.

The road is closed to trucks and other heavy vehicles, which could cause more movement at the site.

Heavy vehicles can use State Highway 25A as an alternative route.

A further update will be issued later today following the geotechnical inspection.
