State Highway 1 is blocked at Kekerengu, north of Kaikoura, after a ute and a tanker collided.

It happened around 11:10am at the Ellerton Railway Overbridge.

Fortunately, there are no injuries of note.

However, the road is blocked and is likely to remain so for several hours until the heavy vehicles can be removed.

Motorists are asked to avoid travel as there are no suitable diversions.
