A crash on the Northwestern Motorway in central Auckland is causing traffic delays.

The NZTA website states the crash is after the Newton Rd offramp on the eastbound side of SH16.

A police spokeswoman said they were called to a two car incident at 6.43pm. The occupants had minor injuries except one man who had moderate injuries and was taken to hospital.
She said one lane is currently blocked but traffic is otherwise flowing freely.


NZTA reccommend avoiding the area or delaying your trip if possible.

Earlier this evening another car crash resulted in hour-and-a-half delays to Papakura.
