Fuel spilt after truck rolls in Bay of Plenty

A large truck has rolled on State Highway 2, just east of Pukehina, in the Bay of Plenty region.

According to police the driver is unharmed, but the vehicle is blocking both lanes on the highway and is leaking fuel.

Emergency services are currently at the scene. Motorists are being told to expect the road to remain closed for at least an hour while the truck is removed and the fuel is cleared.

Traffic travelling east should take a diversion by turning off SH2 at Pukehina Station Rd, then turn down Old Coach Rd before turning back into the highway.

Westbound traffic should use the same route, leaving SH2 at Old Coach Rd before turning onto Pukehina Station Rd and then back onto the highway.
