Emergency services have responded to a multiple vehicle collision on Te Awanui Dr, near the entrance to Tauranga Bridge Marina.

A police spokeswoman said police were in attendance of the collision.

Sergeant Wayne Hunter said it was a five car collision.

A reporter at the scene said traffic going over the Harbour Bridge towards Mount Maunganui was completely back up.

Once off the bridge, near the entrance to the Tauranga Bridge Marina, traffic was flowing slow but steady in one lane, he said.

He said it appeared no one was seriously injured in the crash.
