Traffic is at a standstill both northbound and southbound on sections of Auckland's Southern Motorway after crashes this afternoon.
The right hand lane of the motorway was blocked due to a crash around 1pm near the Tecoma St off-ramp.
While the lane has now been reopened, traffic is backlogged.
One motorist told the Herald the motorway resembled a "carpark".
