Auckland motorway crashes cause traffic chaos

Traffic has eased on Auckland's northern motorway after two crashes caused gridlock this morning.

NZTA spokeswoman Sarah Azam said it appeared traffic was moving again after a serious crash blocking all lanes near Greville Road was cleared by emergency services.

The crash citybound on the Northern Motorway at the Greville off-ramp was earlier blocking all lanes.

An earlier crash near Northcote had also blocked a lane and left traffic backed up to Greville Road.

Those who wanted to head to the city were asked to use an alternative route via East Coast Road.
