Roading and weather update #16 11.30am

Roading and weather update 11.30am

TCDC Roads:

• Wentworth Valley Road, Whangamata - surface water flooding - 4x4 & trucks only

• Avalon Place, Whangamata - slip - limited access

• Rangihau Road, Coroglen - road wash out - road closed

NZTA Roads:

• SH25 bypass road, Whangamata - slips - road still closed.

We've got our contractors out and about clearing slips and debris.

Remember kerbside collections (blue bags only) for Coromandel Town and surrounds that didn't happen on Wednesday because of the bad weather will be collected tomorrow (Saturday) instead.

Meanwhile there's power outages currently at Opito, Otama and Kuaotunu which should be resolved by lunchtime today.

The weather is overcast right now but no heavy rain. Metservice are saying more rain for later tonight, but not as much as what we've experienced in the last couple of days.

So just take care driving those roads and check the weather on the way but the Coromandel is open for visits.

Please use THE NZTA website for the latest updates www.nzta.govt.nz and the metservice for weather updates
