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.

Is this the best summer ever?

Yes, without a doubt

It's great, but 2012/13 was even better

Can't quite recall the year, but there have been better

I long for the Summer of 69 (with apologies to Bryan Adams)

Whatever. I can't wait for winter
