Delays are expected north of Dunedin this morning following a truck fire.

The truck caught fire while travelling south towards Dunedin on State Highway 1, at the passing lane between Russell and Whites Roads, at about 6:30am.

"The driver was uninjured in the incident," says police.

"Two lanes are currently open to traffic but police are asking passing motorists to be aware of the fire site and slow down while passing."

The vehicle will be removed over the next couple of hours and this process may cause disruptions to traffic in the area.

Police ask drivers to be patient if there are delays.
