Motorists facing heavy traffic despite authorities clearing Southern Motorway crash

A crash has been cleared on the Southern Motorway, but Auckland’s evening traffic is heavy in all directions

The Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency earlier said a crash at about 3.30pm had been slowing down traffic on the Southern Motorway just after the Penrose Rd overbridge.

Authorities were able to clear the crash by 4.20pm, yet southbound traffic remained heavy.

Google Maps showed motorists heading south faced heavy traffic on both the Southern Motorway and the Southwestern Motorway.

Those heading west along the Northwestern could expect heavy traffic close to the city while those heading north along the Northern Motorway could expect heavy traffic once off the Harbour Bridge through to Rosedale.

One commuter riding a bus home to the northern suburbs reported traffic had ground to a standstill just after the Harbour Bridge.
