Motorists in Auckland experienced considerable delays on State Highway 1 after a car caught fire and then a truck crashed on the Harbour Bridge today.
A rubbish truck crashed on the Harbour Bridge southbound just after 2pm and police said it blocked two central lanes while a heavy-haulage tow truck was brought in.
The truck had since been cleared off the bridge and only the usual rush hour congestion remains.
Earlier, a car caught fire on the Southern Motorway near Newmarket.
Video from the scene at Gillies Ave showed a silver BMW sedan with the engine bay fully on fire.
Police said no injuries were reported and the fire was brought under control.
