A crash on Auckland's southwestern motorway is slowing traffic around the Waterview Tunnel.

The crash occurred around 2:45pm just after the Maioro Street on-ramp, according to the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA). 

Two southbound lanes were closed due to the incident, the NZTA said.

Motorists on their way to the Auckland Airport were warned to allow additional time.

St John confirmed one ambulance was sent to the scene, but there were no injuries.

It is believed the crash involved a van towing a digger.
