A broken down truck is reported to be causing traffic delays on State Highway 36, near the roundabout outside Tauriko Crossing this morning.

A motorist who travels from Pyes Pa to Tauranga every day says it has taken him about 30 minutes just to get through the roundabout.

"There is a rigid-axle truck that has broken down in the left lane of the roundabout heading towards town.

"Traffic is really jammed back about 1km from the roundabout."
