Traffic has been diverted away from Waihi Road as emergency services block the area to deal with a callout in Tauranga.

A police communications spokeswoman said police were called to the incident on Waihi Road at 6.25pm today. Two fire appliances also attended to assist police with a ladder.

Takitimu Drive was closed from Elizabeth St to the Waihi Rd overbridge.

The spokeswoman said no other details of the callout would be confirmed due to privacy reasons.
