Heavy rain has brought down slips on Wellington roads and led to surface flooding.
On State Highway 2 out of Wellington a slip is blocking the left northbound lane, just north of the Hutt on-ramp, causing delays.

Earlier, the south coast road between Lyall Bay and Island Bay had been closed by a large slip near Houghton Bay which left boulders and rubble on the road.
A slip had partly blocked Horokiwi Road, between Ngauranga and Petone.
There were reports of surface flooding in Featherston Street in the central city.
Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are being warned to watch for slips, flooding and dislodged manhole covers.
