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.
