The crash is now blocking only the right lane.

Police have reopened the motorway from Massey Rd to the Puhinui off-ramp.

Traffic is slowly being fed past the incident via the bus lane.

The tail is now back to Hillsborough Rd.

Fullers advises that Northcote Point Wharf is closed until further notice due to high winds.

There are also multiple traffic signals out across the city.
