Morning crash stops traffic through Terrace Tunnel

News from NZ Police at 8.47am
Morning peak hour traffic was delayed this morning by a nose-to-tail crash in the southbound lane of State Highway 1 just before the entrance to the Terrace Tunnel.

Police and other services were called to the crash.

The road was blocked while occupants were checked and vehicles were moved to the side.

The overnight rain is causing roads to be slippery with some minor surface flooding.

And low mist in Wellington means limited visibility.
