Traffic chaos in Dunedin this afternoon, with thousands of people turning out to watch the annual jaffa race.
It's estimated nearly 14,000 people made their way to Baldwin street to watch the giant jaffas cascade down the world's steepest street.
There were delays to some bus services in Central and North Dunedin due to the large volume of onlookers.
Cadbury Events Co-ordinator Lee-Anne Anderson says emergency services were still able to get through with Fulton Hogan staff helping to manage traffic.
For the record - the standard red jaffas hurled down at 35 seconds, no match for the specially created black and white 'Olympic' varieties - the fastest steaming down at an impressive 28 seconds.
