Snow and ice close North Island roads

Snow and ice have closed the Desert Road and the Napier-Taupo route in the central North Island.

State Highway 1 between Waiouru and Rangipo was closed on Monday night, as was SH5, the New Zealand Transport Agency says.

The roads were still closed this morning.

The agency is warning winter is making driving conditions difficult around the country.

Black ice is expected on some South Island roads this morning.
