Just south of Whangarei there's been a crash on State Highway 1 near Raumanga Valley Road, which is blocking all lanes.

In Auckland, a crash is blocking the right southband lane on the northern motorway just after the Greville Road on ramp.

Sunnybrae Road on the North Shore is also closed between Coronation Road and Porana Road due to a crash.

And in Otago, a section of State Highway 8 is closed near the intersection with State Highway 1 at Milton due to a serious crash.
