Roading update #2 - 5pm

Roading update #2 - 5pm

A few roads have been closed on the Coromandel because of flooding or slips. With rain forecast through the evening and night, be very careful if travelling.

Here are the roads we know are closed or that have a weather-related issue as of 5pm Sunday:

Kennedy Bay Rd - we hear this is now open.

Wharekara River bridge on SH25 at Opoutere is down to one lane because of high river levels. Contractor on site monitoring.

SH25 Kuaotunu West - 3 large slips covering road. Contractors notified.

There is stop-go control on SH25 between Prescott's Garage and Tairua because of flooding on the highway. Some vehicles are being allowed through.

Hikuai Settlement Rd - closed due to flooding.Port Jackson Rd, Ohinewai ford - closed

SH25 at Onemana/Opoutere - Wharekawa River very high at SH25 bridge.

309 RD - was closed due to tree down, now open.

No water in Hikutaia and Omahu Valley Rd area. Valve blocked and unreachable because of high river levels. No ETA on resolution.

The heavy rain is expected to continue until Monday morning, potentially bringing another 100mm of rain on top of what's already fallen on Sunday morning.

The message from Civil Defence is watch for rapidly rising waters, avoid waterways and if travelling take extreme care as there is debris on roads from lots of minor slips.

The mid-afternoon high tide is making low-lying coastal roads prone to flooding.

Delay travel plans until Monday to reduce risks.
