A stock truck crashed on SH2 Karangahake Gorge this morning spilling stock into the river, trapping some in a trailer and more running loose on the road.
Emergency services attended the scene, along with a vet.
Stop/go traffic management was put in place and motorists were warned to expect delays while the road was down to one lane.
Later in the day the road between Paeroa and Waihi was closed to traffic and a 90 minute detour allowed drivers needing to get through to make the journey between Paeroa and Waihi if necessary.
The road was fully reopened at about 4.20 pm today.
