All lanes now open on Auckland’s Southern Motorway after truck crash

The NZ Transport Agency says all four southbound lanes on Auckland’ Southern Motorway are open to traffic again after a crashed truck was pulled clear.

The truck rolled and blocked three of the four lanes just before the Princes St off ramp in Otahuhu for about 30 minutes.

Traffic is now moving south again but is backed up to Penrose.

Drivers heading south on SH1 should expect delays until the backlog is cleared. Please delay your travel or use alternative routes to avoid the area.
