State Highway 29 through the Kaimai Ranges in the Bay of Plenty is closed after two seperate truck crashes this morning.

A truck trailer rolled just before 6am on SH29 near Te Poi Road, and a crane is needed to move the trailer.

There were no injuries reported but the truck has blocked the road.

Another truck has also crashed near Old Kaimai Road.

The crashes have shut SH29 through the Kaimai Ranges and between Hinuera State Highway 27 and Te Poi.

NZTA said motorists should expect delays as detours were in place for those travelling to and from Tauranga.
