Traffic on northern motorway flowing again

11:55 am on 2 October 2013

Traffic is now flowing as usual on the northern motorway into Christchurch after being blocked for about five hours on Wednesday morning.

The south bound lane of the motorway was blocked when a shipping container fell off a truck and trailer unit shortly before 5.30am.

Traffic was diverted through Belfast.

Police say the road has been cleared and traffic is flowing smoothly.
