The closure of two Auckland Harbor Bridge lanes is causing a large backlog of north-bound traffic on the city's southern motorway.

Traffic heading north is almost gridlocked for about 10 kilometres, from the Ellerslie exit, all the way up to the bridge.

The bridge's two clip-on lanes have been closed by the NZ Transport Agency since Boxing Day for routine resurfacing work.

The closure will last until Sunday 8 January 2012. As well as the two bridge lanes, the Curran Street on-ramp and the Stafford Road off-ramp will also be closed.
