Tallow closes Kaimai road

7:42 pm on 17 December 2011

State Highway 29 across the Kaimai ranges was closed for a time on Saturday after a truck spilled tallow on the road.

Police say the tallow has made the surface dangerously slippery.

Motorists were directed to detours via State Highway Two through Te Puke to Rotorua, or State Highway 36 through Pyes Pa to Rotorua.
