A major Hamilton thoroughfare is expected to be closed for at least another hour as crash investigators work to find out what exactly happened in a collision in the city early this evening.

Diversions are in place and Avalon Dr (SH1), between Te Rapa and Tasman Roads, remains closed following the crash between a motorbike and a 4wd vehicle.

The male motorcyclist was taken to Waikato Hospital by ambulance suffering from serious injuries sustained in the crash which happened about 6pm.

Waikato Serious Crash Unit investigators said from the scene that the occupants of the Range Rover vehicle the motorbike collided with were shaken but unharmed.

The road will remain closed to allow the investigators to complete their preliminary examinations.
