A truck has broken down on Auckland's Harbour Bridge, already causing delays for the long weekend.
New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) said the truck broke down as it was heading southbound around 12:55pm on Friday.
"Expect delays as congestion eases from this incident," NZTA tweeted.
NZTA is urging Kiwis to stay vigilant as long weekend traffic looms ahead.
"It's inevitable that there will be congestion and delays during peak times," Regional Transport Systems Manager Mark Owen says.
"But people can avoid the worst of this by planning ahead and leaving when the road is less busy, like early in the morning or later in the evening."
NZTA has released a holiday traffic journey tool to help drivers plan and avoid delays.
"Because predicted peak times can change based on incidents, weather or even driver behaviour, motorists should also check our journey planner before they head off," Owen says.
"It can be frustrating getting stuck in traffic, but the most important thing is that everyone gets to their destination safely."
"Please plan ahead, be patient, and drive to the conditions."
