A burst water main is causing significant delays for northbound drivers between Mana and Porirua.

NZ Transport Agency spokesman Anthony Frith said motorists could expect significant delays, and it was likely to "get worse before it gets better".

He said he couldn't put a timeframe on it, but the issue was in Mana and traffic was backed up to Porirua by 4pm. Motorists were asked to be patient.

Frith said the delays were linked to a burst water main in Mana earlier in the day, which briefly cut water supply to the Mana and Camborne area.

Pascoe Ave residents were still without water but expected to be back on by 5pm. Porirua City Council had brought in a water tanker to service properties still without water.
