Motorists travelling along State Highway 29, in the Lower Kaimai area, can expect delays as the Tauranga-bound lane at Ruahihi is closed.

The NZTA says the lane will be closed for several hours.

The police dive squad has arrived on scene where a vehicle went into the Wairoa River last night, says a reporter at the scene.

“Traffic will be down to a single lane with stop/go traffic management and speed restrictions in place," says NZTA.


“Please take extra care and expect delays. Motorists are encouraged to delay unnecessary travel, where possible.
