Two trucks have collided on the Matamata side of the Kaimai Ranges on State Highway 29 – near the same place where a truck carrying palm kernels rolled a week ago today.
A logging truck and a signage truck have collided on the highway near its intersection with Raparapa Road just after 10.30am today, forcing the closure of one lane.
Both drivers are reported to be out of their vehicles and uninjured.
Emergency services are at the scene and advise that the road will be reduced to one lane in either direction until further notice.
Motorists are being advised to drive with caution.
On Friday, April 20 a truck and trailer unit carrying palm kernel rolled on the same section of highway closing both lanes of the highway for about an hour.
