BEROWRA: Avoid the M1 Pacific Mwy here after a serious crash involving a ute and pedestrian. Northbound diverting at Windybanks Interchange and southbound using the northbound carriageway (contra flow) to head south. Slow down and take care. Very heavy traffic and long delays. pic.twitter.com/C8xTd3qdJK
