Motorists were delayed this evening after 10 cars were involved in two separate crashes.
Inspector Ken Climo said seven cars were involved in a nose-to-tail crash north-bound on State Highway 1 near the Johnsonville off-ramp about 5.15pm, police say.
Three cars were earlier involved in another nose-to-tail crash at the south-bound entrance to the Terrace Tunnel about 5pm.
No one was injured in either crash, Mr Climo said.
"Yes, they [motorists] can expect delays until people get their cars out of the way," he said.
The crash was largely cleared by 6:15pm.
