Long delays on Auckland Southern Motorway after truck crash

Long delays on Auckland’s Southern Motorway after truck crash

The NZ Transport Agency says northbound drivers on Auckland’s Southern Motorway (State Highway 1) can expect long delays after a truck crashed and rolled near the East Tamaki Road northbound off ramp this afternoon.

Drivers heading north on SH1are being diverted on to the Southwestern Motorway (SH20) at Manukau. The northbound on ramps to the Southern Motorway at Redoubt Road, Te Irirangi Drive and East Tamaki Road are closed.

All southbound lanes on the Southern motorway are open, but congestion is building up just past the Highbrook interchange as drivers slow as they pass the crash scene.

“For their own safety, we ask drivers not to slow down to avoid any delays southbound on the Southern Motorway during the afternoon peak. There is a risk of bumper to bumper crashes if people become distracted as they pass the crash scene,” says the NZTA’s acting State Highways manager for Auckland and Northland, Steve Mutton.

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.
