Coromandel Peninsula motorists asked to avoid travel

"Coromandel Peninsula motorists asked to avoid travel "

Waikato Police ask motorists to avoid unnecessary travel in the Coromandel Peninsula today due to extreme weather conditions.

Emergency services have assisted multiple drivers with removing their cars after they have got stuck trying to drive through flooded waters.

State Highway 25 is closed near the intersection of Hikuai Settlement Road due to flooding, and no diversions into Pauanui are available.

There is also a slip on State Highway 3, Mokau River, and another on State Highway 2 on Karangahake Gorge, causing significant delays.

Many other roads are flooded, including Kopu-Hikuai Road and the Kauaeranga Valley Road, so all unnecessary travel should be avoided.

During this poor weather, Police remind motorists to exercise caution – keep speeds down, maintain a safe following distance, and avoid driving through any flooded areas.
