Traffic is being slowed this afternoon by the second crash at the Mt Victoria tunnel today.

An NZTA spokesman said the crash happened in the city-bound lane late this afternoon. Delays were mostly affecting city-bound traffic and drivers were advised to consider an alternative route.

However, traffic away from the city was also slowed.

The crash had been cleared by 3.40pm, police said. There were no reported injuries from the nose-to-tail crash.

This morning, a motorcyclist was taken to Wellington Hospital with serious injuries after a crash outside the Mt Victoria tunnel.

A car and motorcycle crashed in Ruahine St, blocking the westbound merge lane outside the eastern entrance to the Mt Victoria tunnel.

The motorcyclist was taken to hospital by Wellington Free Ambulance.

Also this morning, just after 9am, a three-car crash blocked the southbound centre lane on the urban motorway, just before the Aotea Quay off-ramp. 

Further north, a truck tipped on the Otaihanga roundabout near Waikanae at 3.16am, causing significant delays. 

The southbound Mana Transport truck rolled while driving through the roundabout at and tipped onto a garden in the centre of the roundabout.

A Mana Transport spokesman said the driver was shaken but not believed to be injured.
