Crash in Onehunga has brought power lines down blocking road

A crash has occurred at the intersection of Captain Springs Road and Neilson Street in Onehunga, Auckland at about 5.25pm tonight.

A driver collided with a power pole, which is now on a lean and the pole will take at least four hours to be fixed.

The road will be closed while this is being done.

Cordons are in place, so motorists are advised to take alternate routes, or delay travel.

Police thank motorists for their patience.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
