Truck crash at Otaki brings down power lines and closes SH1 overnight

News from NZ Police
A single truck crash on State Highway 1 at the northern end of Otaki has brought down power lines and created disruptions to the electricity supply in the immediate area.

The stretch of State Highway 1 will be closed until tomorrow morning and as a result traffic diversions are in place.

Northbound traffic will need to turn right into Rahui Road from SH 1, then left into Freemans Road, left again into Te Manuao Road and then back onto SH 1. Southbound traffic will need to do the reverse.

Contractors will be assisting motorists through the diversion throughout the night.

No one was injured in the crash.
