Crash causing big disruption on Auckland motorway

3:05 pm on 24 May 2013

The Transport Agency says a crash on Auckland's southern motorway is causing major delays in both directions, just before rush hour begins.

Police say a ute and trailer rolled just south of the Newmarket Viaduct, on the north-bound side, just before 2pm on Friday.

The crash is blocking two out of three north-bound lanes and debris is also blocking the south-bound lanes.

The Transport Agency says there are considerable delays in both directions and drivers should use other routes.
