Several thousand litres of glue have spilled onto the road
after two trucks collided on State Highway 1 south of

The crash happened about 3.30am between the two vehicles, one
carrying 14,000 litres of glue.
Some of it has leaked onto the road surface, making
conditions very slippery, said police.
The affected road is State Highway One from the intersection
of Maungakaramea Rd to the intersection with Mangapai Rd and
drivers are being warned to slow down, use care and expect
Police, Fire Service, and road contractors are at the scene
and the clean up process is expected to take some hours.
