A ruptured gas main in the Mount Maunganui area has led to roads being closed off.
Fire and emergency northern communications shift manager Craig Dally says contractor has hit the gas main.
“We have two crews there, they are just making it safe and are waiting for the gas expert to show up.”
Craig says no evacuations needed to take place.
According to Craig, the road is being closed at Maunganui Road at the intersection with Clyde Street.
“There is no ETA at this stage for the gas people, but crews will wait until the experts show up and clamp it off.”
