A truck fire on the Southwestern Motorway has blocked northbound and southbound lanes as Fire and Emergency work to contain the blaze.
Waka Kotahi said to expect delays in both directions on the Southwestern Motorway between Mangere and Hillsborough and to avoid the area if possible.
All northbound lanes just prior to the Hillsborough off-ramp are closed. The fire has been extinguished and heavy haulage are on-site.

Heavy haulage has now towed the truck CLEAR of live lanes. Our crews are on-site and are working to clean and assess the road damage. We hope to have two northbound lanes open shortly. Avoid the area if possible. #FridayTraffic. ^MF pic.twitter.com/WWREaViN8F
