The Mt Victoria tunnel was blocked to all traffic after a multi-car pile up this afternoon.

A Wellington police spokesman said the nose-to-tail crash involving more than two cars was reported about 2.35pm.

The tunnel was blocked while emergency services tended to the crash, the spokesman said.

Traffic backed up all the way along Kent Tce and motorists were advised to take an alternative route.

The blockage was cleared about 3:30pm, according to the New Zealand Transport Agency.
