Please choose routes that avoid driving through Hamilton city’s State Highway 1C (SH1C) intersection at Cobham Drive and Cambridge Road if you can. That’s the message from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, as the project to improve the busy Hillcrest intersection has run into an unexpected delay.
Investigations are continuing in an effort to understand the extent of the cracks that appeared on State Highway 25A (SH25A) last week. The results of geotechnical monitoring and investigations will help inform decision-making for the future repair of the road.
Significant delays are expected on State Highway 2 (SH2) between Waihī to Ōmokoroa at the Morton Road roundabout site this Wednesday 25 January. Drivers should avoid travelling this route if possible, or anticipate a longer journey.
After numerous cracks were identified and investigated in the road structure on Monday 16 January, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency made the decision to close State Highway 25A (SH25A) due to the potential risk of the cracks worsening overnight.
