Logs fallen from truck lead to SH1 road closure

3:03 pm on 17 March 2009

A truck has lost its load of logs on a railway crossing on State Highway 1 near Hukerenui in the Far North.

Police advised the road was down to one lane on Monday morning, and that there would be a full road closure later in the morning to allow heavy haulage equipment to be used to remove the fallen logs.

Motorists were advised to delay non-essential travel as alternative routes are not readily avaliable.

No-one has been injured in the incident.
