A truck has broken down on State Highway 1 Pukerua Bay. This has caused large delays back to as far as Otaki for southbound traffic.
There is no hard shoulder or other area that the truck can be towed to.
The services of a large tow truck have been sought and we are hoping to have it removed shortly.
Police and emergency services are at the scene of the breakdown.
