A section of Te Ngae Road will be closed on Sunday for a police investigation following a fatal crash last month.

The NZ Transport Agency has said the highway will be closed by Coulter Road, near the Owhata Shops, from 7am until 9.30am.

Traffic will be detoured via Sunrise Ave, Rewarewa Street, and Pohutukawa Drive.

The Owhata shops will still be accessible during the closure via Wharenui Rd (to Glenfield Road then Coulter Road).
