Peak-hour delays for motorway traffic leaving Wellington

Wellington.Scoop
Two minor accidents caused major traffic delays in Wellington at peak-hour this afternoon.

A crash on SH2 north of the Ngauranga offramp caused traffic on SH1 to back up as far as Johnsonville.

Traffic also came to a standstill up on the urban motorway as far south as Murphy Street.

The other contributing incident was in the Terrace Tunnel.

Tweets from the Transport Agency gave a minimal idea of a maximum problem.
