A truck was forced to stop on State Highway 29, near Tauriko, following fears pipes could have fallen off the back of his trailer
A caller to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline says a member of the public is directing traffic.
"It's blocking the right-hand entering the roundabout.
"One of the chains had snapped and looked like the load could come off. I believe the truck stopped before this could happen."
A police media spokesperson says the incident happened just before 11am.
“A truck has broken down at the roundabout on SH29 near Lakes Boulevard and Tauriko.
“Traffic will be delayed and motorist should exercise patience and care in the area.”
