A large tub of paint is causing delays on Auckland's Northwestern Motorway.
The 1000-litre container of acrylic paint spilled from truck near spaghetti junction just before 5pm, a Northern Fire Communications spokesman said.
Five fire crews were at the scene.
A specialist unit was also working to absorb the paint from the motorway, he said.
