Truck blocks Wellington tunnel

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 16/05/2017

An oversized truck trying to enter Wellington's Terrace Tunnel blocked morning commuter traffic for about 25 minutes before it was removed by police.

The over-height vehicle stopped before the northern entrance to the tunnel on State Highway 1 about 6.45am on Wednesday. Police said they had to close both lanes to turn it around.

It took 25 minutes before both lanes were reopened.

"Police would like to thank motorists for their patience while the build-up is cleared."
