Police advised that a truck and trailer unit has rolled on SH25 between Tairua and Whitianga.

No diversion is possible.

The road is down to one lane and lengthy queues are forming.

The crash is on the Tairua side of Whenuakite so this will affect traffic travelling to Hahei, Hot Water Beach, Whitianga, etc. Drivers are advised that the quickest route to Auckland from Whitianga is via Coromandel town and Thames. The road is expected to be closed for several hours. The truck was carrying molasses and fuel is leaking.
