Road diversions for light traffic are currently in place on SH30 (near Pureora Forest) from Barryville Road to Maraeroa Road.

We have also restricted heavy traffic on SH30 (East of Bennydale)

A tanker has crashed on its side and one lane is blocked currently.

The road will be closed for some time to all traffic later today to allow for the removal of this over turned tanker.

The driver has suffered only moderate injuries and is being treated at hospital.
