Police said the slip initially covered both northbound lanes before the Petone offramp, but one lane had been reopened.

“There has been a significant impact to traffic heading north. It is thought contractors will be at the scene for a number of hours and the other lane will remain closed,” a police spokesperson said.

Queues of traffic were building as people were leaving the city.
