A brawl broke out on Auckland's Southern Motorway after a driver took exception to the way another motorist was changing lanes, police say.

Emergency services were called to the incident on the Market Rd off-ramp at 1.06pm, a police spokeswoman said.

"A vehicle had come in to join the motorway. A vehicle in another lane has taken exception for some unknown reason and the vehicles have pulled to the side and a person has been assaulted."

It did not appear there had been any contact between the vehicles.
