Slow-mo Wednesday: Aucklanders’ commuting nightmare as snarl-ups spread

Crashes on Auckland motorways are causing a headache for commuters around the city.

A crash is blocking the Northwestern Motorway, and another crash on State Highway 20 Southwestern Motorway has been cleared but Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is warning of ongoing delays.

Another crash happened on the Northwestern Motorway at 7.25am, and is blocking the right lane citybound under Lincoln Rd overbridge.

“Merge left with care to pass and expect delays citybound from Westgate,” NZTA tweeted this morning.

Just before 8am and the situation wasn’t getting any better.

NZTA said a tow truck was on its way but the crash was still blocking the right southbound lane at Lincoln Rd.

The agency is urging people to allow extra time to get into the city.
