Auckland Harbour Bridge broken after truck tips

The Auckland Harbour Bridge has been broken after strong winds tipped over a truck.

Last week, high winds caused the truck to tip and hit a key structure.

Only the outside lanes on both sides of the bridge are currently open to traffic after the incident which occurred on Friday.

Experts said that one of the centre struts was damaged and it could take more than a month to replace it.

The accident has led to huge delays for motorists.

The reason why the truck tipped over is because the trucks were empty after they delivered there things.
