State Highway 25A - overnight closure coming up


SH25A will be closed overnight on Wednesday 6 March to allow our team to carry out some final works at our new bridge on SH25A Taparahi.

The closure is needed so our team can install a new rubber seal into one of the bridge joints which runs across the full width of the road. At the same time they will install grates on the side drains along the eastern road approach.

The work is being done overnight to minimise disruption to road users, with the road closing from 9.30pm on Wednesday 6 March until 5.00 am on Thursday 7 March.

Detours will be via SH25 along the Thames coast and Coromandel township or via SH26/SH2/SH25 through the Karangahake Gorge, Waihi and Whangamata. Access for local traffic along SH25A will be maintained up to the bridge from both the east and west.

Work to finish the restoration of SH25A at the Taparahi worksite is expected to be completed by the end of March.

SH25A was reopened just before Christmas in December 2023, three months ahead of schedule.
