Auckland motorists are being warned of delays after a truck breakdown on the Southern Motorway this morning.

There is heavy congestion just after the Dominion Road offramp, where large truck is blocking the middle lane. Traffic is also heavy at Hillsborough Rd.

"Please take care when passing and expect delays,'' the NZ Transport Agency said.

Citybound traffic is also heavy between Drury and Takanini, as well as between Princes St and Greenlane.

West Aucklanders heading into the city face heavy congestion between Westgate and Royal Rd and between St Lukes Rd and the Southern Link.

However, people heading south on the Southern Motorway, and west on the Northwestern, can enjoy free-flowing conditions this morning.
