Car fire closes part of Auckland motorway

7:32 pm on 8 June 2012

A section of Auckland's southern motorway is closed after a car caught fire on Friday evening.

The closure affects the north-bound lane between Otahuhu and Mt Wellington.

Diversions are in place with north-bound traffic exiting the motorway at Princess Street in Otahuhu and entering the motorway at Mt Wellington.

Motorists can expect delays and are being asked to use alternative routes.
