Bus goes wrong way on harbour bridge

3:47 pm on 26 August 2013

A bus has disrupted traffic after trying to drive the wrong way on Auckland's harbour bridge.

Police say the passenger bus accidentally drove onto the Shelly Bay off-ramp on the city side of the bridge and ended up travelling north in the south-bound lane.

They say the bus driver quickly realised the error and stopped while waiting for emergency services.

The passengers were transferred to another bus and the first bus was turned around.
