A large sinkhole has formed in a South Auckland road after rainfall.

Kingseat Rd will be closed between Glenbrook Rd and Pearson Rd for the foreseeable future as engineers assess the hole, which is about 2m x 2m in size, a police spokesman said.

Motorists are asked to use the diversion in place via Pearson Rd.

Kingseat Rd is expected to be cloed for three to four days, Auckland Transport said.

It is closed at number 270, with a detour in place using Glenbrook Rd and Pearson Rd.
