A five-car nose-to-tail collision is causing long queues of traffic northbound on the Hutt Motorway tonight.
The incident occurred north of the Ngauranga Gorge interchange, and police said it would be some time before traffic was able to flow freely.
It was hoped the road could be back up to two lanes by about 8pm.
The vehicles were being cleared from the motorway.
