Traffic is, once again, almost at a standstill along State Highway 2, southbound towards Tauranga.
Several callers to the SunLive newsroom have noted the line stretches all the way from Bethlehem to Esdaile Road, near Pahoia School.
One caller remarked he had been out twice today, in the morning and afternoon, only to find the traffic situation the same.
“I think Simon Bridges ought to drive this route,” he says.
Traffic has naturally worsened over the holiday period, and Blackcaps game at the Mount may also be a factor.
Traffic was backed up along the harbour bridge earlier today in the lead-up to the game.
