A ute and trailer carrying out roadworks on the Waikato Expressway has rolled in the south-bound lane, causing chaos on the road.
The Downer Construction ute towing a light trailer flipped at 6pm blocking the south-bound lane. It had been carrying out work just after Hampton Downs, Waikato Police senior sergeant Charles Burgess said.
The two occupants had minor injuries.
A tow truck had been called to help remove the dual axle tandem trailer from one of the lanes.
