Commuters heading into Wellington should expect delays this morning after road works equipment broke down at Johnsonville.

Sergeant Andy Dow said State Highway 1 southbound between Churton Park and Johnsonville will be down to one lane until 8am, as overnight resurfacing work has been late in finishing due to the equipment breakdown.

Mr Dow said large delays were expected and motorists were asked to be patient.
