One person has died following a motorcycle crash in the Waikato District.

The crash happened on Highway 22 in Pukekawa about 9.30am today.

The road is now closed and diversions are in place.

The Police Serious Crash Unit has also been advised.


A spokesperson from nearby business Thundercross Bike Park said the road was popular with motorcyclists heading out for a ride.

"I've been sitting here having breakfast and I've seen 15, 20 people on their bikes heading past.

"It's a bit like the highway out to Kaiaua, Thames and the Coromandel."

The man said he hadn't seen anything of the crash this morning.
