The interchange between Auckland’s Southern and Southwestern motorways has reopened after being closed by a fatal truck crash earlier this morning.
The truck crashed on the westbound flyover linking the Southern Motorway with the Southwestern.

The Southern Motorway’s northbound off-ramp to Great South Road was also closed while the vehicle was removed, the NZ Transport Agency said.

The agency said people should continue to drive with care on the flyover while a safety guardrail damaged in the crash was repaired.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
