Reports are coming in of a logging truck trailer that has rolled on State Highway 2, in Bethlehem.
A caller to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline says the trailer of a logging truck has flipped on the highway between Bethlehem Road and Te Paeroa Rd.
The caller says logs are strewn all over the road, but there appears to be no injuries.
"I'm in the double lanes heading up to Bethlehem from Tauranga city. Traffic has become gridlocked, if possible it's best to just avoid the area altogether."
NZTA are also advising motorists of delays.
"Northbound lanes remain open, while a short detour is in place for all southbound traffic.
"Please allow extra time or consider an alternative route."
