Members of the public have jumped out of their cars to try and save a dog running loose in traffic on Auckland Harbour Bridge today.

Police say they received calls around 3pm that there was a dog running freely on the notoriously busy bridge.

Geoff Glanville filmed the unusual incident, posting the footage to his Facebook page with the caption "dog running up the Harbour Bridge don't see that every day".

Concerned motorists can be seen chasing the dog in the footage, after pulling over on the bridge's thin median strip.

The New Zealand Transport Agency tweeted that the dog is safe and well after the ordeal.

Police told 1 NEWS there were no reports of any crashes due to the incident.
