Drivers using State Highway 29 over the Kaimai Ranges were urged to take care and slow down due to an oil spill yesterday.

The road was down to one lane as contractors busily cleaned the spill which was down from the summit on the Matamata side.

The incident happened after a crash yesterday morning involving a ute and a car.

Police said the spill affected about 300 metres of road.
