Holiday traffic building on SH1 and SH2
Holiday traffic is building on many of the major highways around the Bay causing severe delays in travel.
The southbound lane on State Highway One and eastbound lane on State Highway Two through to Katikati and Te Puna is back-to-back with traffic.
A SunLive caller says that they are currently driving on State Highway Two in the westbound lane and traffic is built up all the way to Whakamarama.
NZTA says to avoid the areas completely or allow extra time to your next destination.
