SH25 and SH25A are important routes and we know road closures are frustrating, both for locals and holiday-makers. Since the middle of 2017 we have had a programme of work to improve safety and resilience designed to both protect the road and reduce the risk of further closures.

The steep and winding roads in the Coromandel mean that there is always a high risk of slips or rock falls after heavy rain. This makes it especially important to check for the latest information about road closures or work happening on the road before you travel.
