All lanes re-open on Auckland’s Southern Motorway says NZTA
The NZ Transport Agency says all southbound lanes on Auckland’s Southern Motorway (State Highway 1) have re-opened after a crash near the Mt Wellington interchange earlier this afternoon.
The NZTA says southbound congestion remains heavy and drivers heading south at the start of the Queen’s Birthday holiday weekend face delays.
The multi-vehicle crash just north of the interchange had blocked two of the Southern Motorway’s three southbound lanes. The crash happened just before the start of the afternoon peak on the city’s motorway network.
The NZ Transport Agency works to create transport solutions for all New Zealanders – from helping new drivers earn their licences, to leading safety campaigns to investing in public transport, state highways and local roads. Follow us on twitter @nzta_news.
