Police are warning motorists of significant delays to travel
on the northwestern motorway in Auckland after a serious
crash this morning.
The accident happened in the city bound lanes just before 5am
under the Carrington Rd overbridge.
One person suffered serious injuries, Inspector Kerry Watson
Police warned as of 6am there was already considerable
congestion - which would get worse.
Traffic was being diverted onto Great North Rd, Waterview.
Motorists were advised to avoid the area or face delays.
Meanwhile, delays are expected after a truck and trailer unit
flipped in the Waikato today.
The crash happened on Karangahake Gorge Road, 18km east of
Paeroa about 3.40am , Insp Watson said.
The road has been partly closed while heavy moving equipment
clears the area.
One lane would remain open most of the time until it was
clear, Insp Watson said.
Considerable congestion was likely to occur and it was
estimated the road would not be clear for some time.
