Traffic congestion is still prominent on State Highway 25 near Tairua after a four vehicle crash occurred earlier on Sunday.

Police were notified of a four-vehicle crash at about 1pm near the Hikuai River bridge.

A Police spokesperson says no injuries were sustained in any of the vehicles.

“The road was partially blocked for a period by one of the vehicles although we believe it is all cleared now.

“The bridge at this location is a one-way bridge, so there was some additional congestion as a result of the crash and also the fact that this is the main highway to and from the eastern Coromandel Peninsula.”

Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency says State Highway 25 is now open after the earlier crash.
