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."
