SH16 open again after crash

11:13 am on 9 July 2015

Part of State Highway 16 in Auckland is open again after a crash, north of Kumeu.

Both lanes were closed for several hours after two trucks collided.

Sixty litres of diesel spilled onto the road.

Contractors and emergency services have now cleaned the site and the Transport Agency says all lanes have re-opened and congestion is easing.

Five people were injured in the crash.
