Tauranga City Council advises traffic delays are likely on State Highway 2 after a truck breakdown.

A truck has broken down at the Bethlehem roundabout and is blocking one of the city-bound lanes, says the council in a statement.

"A queue of traffic is stretching back towards Te Puna. People driving from Te Puna will take a lot longer than usual to get through the Bethlehem area.

"Please be patient or delay your trip if possible until the backlog clears."

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
