A truck spilled a load of fertiliser on to a Dunedin street, stopping traffic yesterday.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand staff and Downer contractors were busy clearing it from the intersection of Frederick and Castle Sts yesterday afternoon.

The spill closed the street for a time.

Dunedin City Council transport delivery manager Josh Von Pein said the road was reopened by 4.50pm, but staff would check it again last night to ensure there were no issues.
