Police said late this afternoon that SH1 north of Wellington is ‘very slow going at the moment, as everyone seems to be leaving town at once.’

According to police traffic units, the traffic is slow going from Plimmerton all the way up to Otaki.

Drivers are asked to consider delaying their travel a few hours if they can, to avoid sitting in stalled or slow traffic for long periods.
