NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 29/06/2016

A part of State Highway 2 between Tauranga and Opotiki remains closed after heavy rain in the Bay of Plenty.

Serious flooding and slips were still being cleared at Matata on Thursday morning, the New Zealand Transport Agency says.

It was not clear when the road would reopen.

A detour, via the road inland to Lake Rotorua, was available.
