Police said motorists were stuck for hours in heavy traffic on State Highway 25 at Maramarua, heading towards the Bombay Hills south of Auckland on Sunday evening.

Police fielded a large number of calls from motorists who were stuck in the traffic jam.

A spokesperson says a road resealing operation and holidaymakers returning from the Whangamata beach hop caused the congestion.
