Police have been called out to two crashes on Auckland's motorways today - one on the Northern and one the Southern.

Both crashes happened around 2.40pm.

A police spokeswoman said up to four cars had crashed on the Northern Motorway near the south bound Upper Harbour Highway offramp and at least one car was partly blocking the fast lane, but there were no traffic delays.

Members of the public told police one car was on its side, but it appeared no one had been hurt, she said.

Meanwhile on the Southern Motorway three cars collided between the Papakura and Takanini off ramps.

The cars had been moved to the central median barrier on the motorway and were not affecting traffic, the spokeswoman said. A tow truck had been called to move the cars.

She said there had been no reported injuries in the Southern Motorway crash.
