Tree blocks State Highway 1

19:56, Aug 19 2014

State Highway 1 north of Auckland has reopened after having been blocked by a fallen tree near Warkworth.

The large tree had been blocking both lanes of the highway, about 2km south of the satellite station near Warkworth.

However, the NZ Transport Agency said at 7.45am that the road was now open in both directions, but traffic was moving slowly in the area.
