State Highway 25, between Tairua and Whenuakite, will be closed overnight on November 13, 14 and November 18 and 19 for road resurfacing.

The road will be closed between Ocean Beach Road on the Tairua side and Boat Harbour Road, on the Whenuakite side.

NZ Transport Agency acting Waikato system manager, Rob Campbell says there will also be Stop/Go traffic management in place on the night of Tuesday, November 12, but the road will be open.

The overnight closures of the road will take place between 8.00pm and 5.00am, with a detour in place between Tairua and Whenuakite via SH25, SH25A, SH26 a temporary roundabout to SH25, and SH25, he says.

“Those travelling between Whenuakite and Tairua should take the same route, in the opposite direction.

“As the detour will add a considerable amount of time to through journeys on the eastern side of the Coromandel Peninsula, people are encouraged to plan their travel for outside the closure hours, where possible.”

Rob says motorists travelling through the area during the day need to drive with care to the posted temporary speed limit to protect both their vehicles and the road surface.

“We regret the inconvenience caused by these works and thank motorists for their patience. Road closures help us to ensure the safety of our workers and the travelling public.”
