The first was a crash in the Mount Victoria tunnel around quarter-past-five, which closed the tunnel in both directions for a time.
It has since re-opened.
The second, on nearby Adelaide Road, around half-past-five, has blocked part of the road, and left one person with serious injuries.
The Transport Agency says motorists should continue to expect delays throughout the city.
