Congestion is starting to build along State Highway 1 at Ōtaki where holidaymakers can expect 15 minute delays as they make their way home.

Traffic congestion is once again building for drivers heading back to the Capital as holidays draw to a close.

The NZ Transport Agency are warning motorists of 30 minute delays along State Highway 1 between Levin and Ōtaki.

Congestion began building up at midday on Tuesday, with NZTA advising southbound traffic of 15 minute delays between Peka Peka to Ōtaki due to holiday traffic.

But nearly two hours later, they said “this congestion has mostly eased in the area”.

Southbound traffic was expected to build throughout the day, and NZTA was predicting congestion to be heaviest between 2.30pm and 6.30pm.

Northbound holidaymakers will also be affected near the coastal community, with traffic build up expected throughout most of the day.
