Fallen tree blocks Bay highway

A fallen tree is expected to cause some travel delays on State Highway 5 in the Bay of Plenty.

The tree came down on the stretch of highway, near Ngongotaha around 7.30pm.

This resulted in a car crashing into it, says police.

No one was injured in the crash.

This morning, the NZ Transport Agency is reporting that a stop/go traffic management system is in place.

“Expect delays or avoid the area if possible.”

It is unclear how long it will take for the tree to be cleared.

Is SH2, between Katikati and Tauranga, a dangerous stretch of road?

Yes, there are too many cars on it and it’s not designed to handle that sort of traffic volume.
No, people just need to slow down and pay attention to their driving.
