One person has been seriously hurt and a main route to Auckland's airport had closed following a crash between a truck and car.

Fire crews cut a person free from the car following the collision on SH20B - or Puhinui Road - at about 7.15am on Friday.

They have been taken to Middlemore Hospital with serious injuries.

Police have closed the road off and motorists trying to get to Auckland Airport are being advised to take George Bolt Memorial drive instead.

The NZTA is warning drivers to avoid the area and to delay trips if possible.

The driver of the truck was uninjured, a police spokeswoman said.
