A car which has caught fire has partially blocked one lane on Auckland's Southern Motorway causing a build up of traffic.

The fire broke out around 1:30 on Monday afternoon near the Gillies Ave off-ramp, police say.

One southbound lane is semi-blocked but all other lanes are open as well as the Gillies Ave off-ramp.

"Expect long delays southbound from the Auckland Harbour Bridge due to a car fire at Gillies Ave. Avoid area if possible," the New Zealand Transport Authority tweeted.

No injuries have been reported.
