Fallen tree blocks Bay highway

Posted at 6:57am Monday 19 Jun, 2017

A fallen tree is expected to cause some travel delays on State Highway 5 in the Bay of Plenty.

The tree came down on the stretch of highway, near Ngongotaha around 7.30pm.

This resulted in a car crashing into it, says police.

No one was injured in the crash.

This morning, the NZ Transport Agency is reporting that a stop/go traffic management system is in place.

“Expect delays or avoid the area if possible.”

It is unclear how long it will take for the tree to be cleared.
