A large tree has fallen across State Highway 1 in Northland
resulting in traffic delays in the area, police say.
The tree had fallen about 2km south of the Satellite Station
near Warkworth and blocked both lanes, but one lane was now
open to traffic.
"Motorists will need to exercise some patience as traffic
travelling in both directions will need to utilise the
restricted thoroughfare, which will be controlled by
authorities until the tree can be removed," police said.
