Harbour Bridge lanes reopen after crashes

1:59 pm on 10 January 2011

All lanes on Auckland's Harbour Bridge have reopened, after a truck break-down and two subsequent crashes caused a backlog of southbound traffic stretching more than a kilometre.

Three southbound lanes were blocked early Monday afternoon and city-bound traffic was gridlocked past Esmond Rd, police said.

Northbound traffic over the bridge was also affected.

Shortly before 2pm police said the blacklog had been cleared.
