Wellington City Council released an image of a large tree that has blocked both lanes on Middleton Rd, Johnsonville.
The tree fell and hit a vehicle while it was driving on the road at around 9:30 am this morning. The driver of the vehicle was reported to be safe and in good condition.
The tree fell approximately 200m north on Curton Drive.
Authorities on site of the scene worked to remove the tree as quickly and as safely as possible.
“Please bear with us as it’ll take some time to clear the road. Stay safe out there today!,” said Wellington City Council in a statement on Facebook.
