Auckland holidaymakers driving to Northland should prepare for delays. 

NZ Transport Agency is reporting traffic queues between Orewa and Wellsford, just north of Auckland.

Commuters heading north for the beach should expect long delays, according to NZTA.

Police said they had also received reports traffic travelling from the south into Queenstown having to queue for about 20 minutes to get across the single-lane bridge over the Kawarau River.
