NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 25/12/2016

A truck and trailer has rolled south of Lake Taupo and closed State Highway 1.

The truck is blocking the highway along Desert Road with a detour for those using SH1 now in place between Rangipo in the north and Waiouru in the south via SH44, SH47 and SH46.

"The detour, which may be in place for several hours, will add at least forty extra minutes to journey's through the area," the NZ Transport Agency says.

No one was injured in the crash, police say.
