EARLIER: A crash on State Highway 2 between Papamoa and Te Puke has added to traffic delays from roadworks.

A police northern communications spokeswoman said the crash between a truck and a car happened just before 8am.

No one was injured in the crash, she said, but there was heavy traffic congestion.

A 600m stretch of State Highway 2 between Atuaroa Bridge and Te Puke Quarry Rd is undergoing road rehabilitation work expected to finish during the first week of April.

Detours were put in place after 9am around this stretch of road, a NZ Transport Agency spokeswoman said.
