A crash on Ruahine Street has closed Wellington's Mt Victoria tunnel in both directions this afternoon.
NZTA Wellington was advising motorists to take an alternative route either through Newtown or the Bays and to avoid the
area if possible.
The pedestrian and cycle path inside the tunnel remain open.
