There has been flash flooding on several routes in and around the city due to heavy downpours. Where motorists are in transit, they should drive to the conditions by slowing down, use headlights and increase following distances.

“Most of all, motorists should be patient and expect journeys to take a little longer than usual this afternoon but, if you don’t have to drive anywhere, don’t,” Inspector Gavin MacDonald of Auckland City Police said.

State Highway 18 between Brigham Creek and Greenhithe Rds is closed due to debris on the road.
