Traffic on State Highway One heading north from Wellington up the Kapiti Coast is extremely heavy and delays of over an hour can be expected.
This is not due to any accidents; it is holiday traffic heading out of town and there is little that can be done to mitigate such delays.
It is also reported that pockets of traffic congestion will be experienced as far north as Waiouru.
Motorists are advised that they should cater for these delays by leaving earlier or delaying travel if possible. Either way, patience will be the key word.
