A Rotorua street is closed until further notice as geothermal activity causes steam, water and mud to seep through the road.
The Rotorua Lakes Council announced the closure of Hatupatu Dr behind the Rotorua Sportsdrome on Wednesday morning.
Video posted by local radio station Te Arawa FM showed the bubbling water and mud seeping through the road.
The council said Hatupatu Dr is closed between Oruawhata and Queens Drs.
"Council staff and contractors continue to monitor and assess the situation," the statement said. "We will share more information as it comes to hand."
