The road has since been reopened.
Earlier, a witness at the scene said there is a large vehicle in the middle of Manukau Rd completely covered by tarpaulins.
Police had initially blocked the exit from the carpark outside a Pak'n'Save supermarket on Manukau Rd.
This was causing congestion within the carpark. However, police have now partially cleared the exit and cars are slowly leaving.
