Congestion is easing across the Auckland motorway network after a very busy afternoon on the southwestern motorways around Auckland Airport. Traffic within the airport itself remains busy, but is slowly easing.
State Highway 20 northbound has been closed at the Neilson Street offramp after a serious crash involving 4 vehicles near Queenstown Road. The crash is adding to significant congestion on the transport network.
Motorists driving to or around Auckland Airport tomorrow afternoon (Thursday, 21 March) are advised to plan ahead and allow extra time because of an event with potential to cause disruption on the transport network.
