Highway chaos causes traffic snarl

DRIVERS are experiencing lengthy delays after two separate incidents on the Bruce Hwy this morning.

An earlier crash at Tanawha left motorists travelling at a crawl near Aussie World.

The northbound lanes towards Nambour are still reduced and drivers are being urged to proceed with caution.

Heading south, a ute with a boat trailer that broke down earlier this morning left traffic at a standstill at Bells Creek and Landsborough.

The southbound lanes are still reduced and long delays are expected.

Motorists are also reporting heavy congestion on the Sunshine Motorway, as traffic struggles to merge onto the busy highway.

Police are urging drivers to be patient and drive to the conditions on Sunshine Coast roads, following three fatal traffic crashes in two days.
