Motorists are facing heavy delays heading north into Auckland following a crash on the Southern Motorway.
The accident left a northbound lane blocked on the motorway near the Mt Wellington off-ramp, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency said.
The lane has since reopened but those using the busy stretch of State Highway 1 are being warned to expect delays in the area.
Earlier emergency teams were at the site, with motorists warned to expect delays and to pass the crash scene with care.
