Traffic heading into Wellington on the motorway faced long delays this morning because of a crash which blocked two of the three southbound lanes just before the Aotea offramp.

The crash, between two vehicles, was reported by NZTA at 6.45am.

An hour later, traffic was backed up as far as Churton Park and the Dowse interchange.

The congestion didn’t start to clear for more than 90 minutes.

Metlink reported that buses from Johnsonville and Newlands and Khandallah and Petone were running late. It wasn’t till after 9am that bus services started returning to normal.

    Who’s claiming that motorways make the traffic flow faster?
