Three months early & under budget: SH 25A to be ready for Xmas

From Checkpoint, 5:16 pm on 13 November 2023

It's finished three months early and under budget.

A huge sigh of relief for Coromandel residents and businesses with the announcement today that State Highway 25A will be open in time for Christmas.

It means the two sides of the Coromandel Peninsula will be reconnected again.

The highway has been closed since January after a massive slip, affecting families, businesses, schools and tourism to the region.
