TRAFFIC: Due to major traffic delays expected in central Auckland, we are advising Aucklanders to avoid unnecessary travel into the city centre," says Auckland Transport spokesperson John Nottage.

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.
The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.
It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
