State highway 28 south of Te Poi now open


State Highway 28 south of Te Poi is now open after a truck crash closed a section of the highway for most of the morning, says NZ Transport Agency.

The Transport Agency says the logging truck which rolled and blocked both lanes has now been removed and this section of highway north of Brown Road has been reopened.

There was minor disruption to traffic as a short detour was in place throughout the closure via Okoroire Road, SH27 and SH29.  All lanes are now open with traffic flowing without any issues.

The Transport Agency’s Regional Performance Manager, Karen Boyt says “We  want to thank motorists for their patience and understanding while the truck recovery operation was undertaken.”

Motorists can find information about most road closures, detours and road works by calling the NZTA’s free phone on 0800 4HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49), which can also be used to report any significant road issues or hazards which people may come across during their travels.

The NZTA also uses other technology to provide information to enable drivers to make better informed choices about their travel.  On The Move is a free service which enables people to sign up for information about crashes, road works and driving conditions on their frequently used routes - to sign up, go to
