Crashed truck blocks Auckland’s
The NZ Transport Agency says a truck
has rolled just north of the East Tamaki Rd northbound

Northbound traffic is down to one lane. However, all
northbound lanes may have to be closed for the recovery of

avoid the area.
Southbound traffic is unaffected.
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
