UPDATED: The New Zealand Transport Agency have confirmed that state highway 36 has been reopened this morning.

At 7.55am a section of Hamurana Rd was closed for three hours after police were investigating a scene following a serious crash earlier in the week.


Motorists travelling between Tauranga and Rotorua today are being reminder of a highway closure this morning.

State Highway 36, near Gloucester Road, is closed and will be for around three hours.

Police say the road closure is to allow for a scene examination to take place following a fatal crash on January 29.

"There will be traffic management in place but motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible and expect delays," says a police spokesperson.

"Motorists are thanked in advance for their patience."
