Police are continuing to investigate a crash where a man was hit by a car near Baypark.

Police say the man suffered moderate injuries and was taken to Tauranga Hospital for treatment.

At the time of the crash, one lane was closed as the serious crash unit examined the scene, which was on the stretch of road between Te Maunga and Bayfair roundabouts.

A police spokesperson says officers have spoken with the driver involved and are continuing their investigation.

Anyone with information about the crash, and haven't already spoken with police, can contact Tauranga Police Station on 07 5774300.

Alternatively, information can be left anonymously via the Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 line.

There was heavy traffic on the roads yesterday with people heading to the Bay Dreams Concert at Baypark.

"If only I captured what was ahead at the crossing and roundabouts. It was madness! As well as all along the grass verge on the Papamoa highway," says the person who filmed the video.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
