Albany Highway was closed between Upper Harbour Drive and Sunset Road, but has now reopened, according to Auckland Transport.

Police said they have been executing a search warrant in relation to a suspected drug lab.

Auckland Transport said while the highway was open again, there was traffic congestion, so motorists could expect delays.
