Police advise SH36 is closed due to
slip, contractors have been on site and advised that likely
closed over night. SH36 at Te Matai is diverted towards Te
Puke (Tauranga Side),
A Rotorua side diversion is being
arranged at Dudley/SH36 and will be manned overnight by
roading staff. This traffic will have to divert back through
Rotorua City to SH33 or via the Kaimai's (SH5, 28, 29) to
get to Tauranga.
The best alternative is SH33 via Te Puke
