Traffic chaos: Gridlock on Auckland motorway after crashes

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”.

NZTA has urged motorists to “be patient while regular traffic resumes.”

Meanwhile, delays are also in order for many northbound motorists after a crash near the Khyber Pass offramp.

The centre lane is closed.
