One person is reported to have serious injuries and a second person has moderate injuries.

Two of the centre southbound lanes are blocked to the Port and Cook St exits as well as access to the Northwestern Motorway.

Sarah Azam from NZTA said they are advising motorists to avoid the area, or else expect long delays.

Motorists wanting to access the Northwestern Motorway should take State Highway 18 or get off at Fanshaw St.
