Wellington's Mt Victoria tunnel is 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 was backed up all the way along Kent Tce.
He advised motorists to take an alternative route.
