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.
