Big delays on Gold Coast roads as thousands hit shops, beaches

There are some major traffic delays across the Gold Coast as thousands of people head to the shops for Boxing Day sales, and to the beaches to soak up the amazing weather.

There’s already been plenty of congestion on Hooker Boulevard and Nerang Broadbeach Rd for people trying to get to Pacific Fair.

Major delays are also being experienced on the Gold Coast Highway between Helensvale and Biggera Waters with Harbourtown proving a popular destination for Boxing Day shoppers.


There’s also been an accident on the M1 southbound at Helenvale with delays back around 6 kilometres.

Drivers are being urged to be patient today with delays expected to keep building throughout the day.

Motoring groups have warned that the period between 10am and 2pm will be the busiest.
