Commuter traffic in Wellington is being slowed by a car fire
in the southbound lane of the Petone to Wellington Motorway.
There have been no injuries, but traffic southbound has been
reduced to one lane, and police said this would cause major
delays to city-bound traffic.
A slight wind is pushing smoke towards the harbour so
visibility has not been an issue but northbound traffic is
slowing considerably due to people watching what is
happening, a police statement said.
Caution is advised in both directions.
