Rolling closures on SH25 Ruamahanga 22 Jan

State Highway 25 at Ruamahanga north of Thames will be closed for short periods on Monday 22 January to allow for a helicopter to safely operate over the road.

The highway will be closed in both directions for up to 20 minutes at a time between midday and 3pm.

After each 20 minute closure the road will be reopened for approximately 20 minutes to allow traffic to clear before the next closure.

The helicopter lift needs to happen on Monday as equipment and materials are urgently required for the important slope stabilisation work happening at SH25 Ruamahanga. This includes drilling holes to allow the installation of soil nails that will help stabilise the slip face.

NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi apolgises for the late notice of these rolling closures and we would ask the Coromandel community to share this information with anyone that may be affected.

This work is weather dependent and if the weather is bad on Monday it will be postponed until the next suitable day.
