A Western Bay of Plenty spokewoman said two cranes were now on site to recover the vehicles and a road closure was required while this was being carried out.

The Old Highway has been closed just north of Youngson Rd, which means residents living on Old Highway between Youngson Rd and Esdaile Rd will need to use Esdaile Rd to get to their properties.

Crane operators are indicating the closure could last until 6pm this evening.
