Police have attended multiple crashes in Northland and Auckland on Saturday

A section of State Highway 1, just north of Puhoi, has reopened after being closed due to a multiple vehicle accident.

There is a 30km speed restriction through the crash site, and the New Zealand Transport Agency recommends avoiding the area, saying congestion is heavy.

The four vehicle crash happened just north of Puhoi between Warkworth and Silverdale at 3.50pm on Saturday.

Police say some of the people involved in the crash sustained moderate injuries.

New Zealand Transport Agency urge motorists to be patient and keep their eyes on the road. 

Congestion and bad weather are being blamed for several crashes in Northland heading south to Auckland.
