SH1 down to one lane at Paremata roundabout after truck rolls

Motorists planning to head north on State Highway 1 from Wellington this evening are asked to delay their journey or choose another route.

A truck and trailer unit with a digger on board, rolled earlier today at the Paremata roundabout and SH1 at Paremata train station is down to one lane

Police advise that a tow-truck with a crane is due to arrive at the scene shortly to remove the truck and trailer, but this will take some time.

This will mean that some of the lanes will be closed again and there will be significant delays for people travelling north on SH1 tonight.

Motorists are asked to be patient if travelling, or delay their journey if planning to head north tonight.
