Gold Coast M1

Cars damaged after hitting debris on M1

A number of motorists have had a bad start to their morning after suffering burst tyres on the M1.

Up to 10 cars were forced to pull up on the side the motorway heading south approaching the Smith St exit.

Several tow trucks were also on the scene.


According to a Police spokesperson, a truck travelling in the southbound lanes suffered mechanical issues.

That caused the truck to drop debris all over the motorway leading to the tyre damage.

It’s understood crews have been called in to help clear the debris.

Motorists are being warned to take extra care through that stretch of the M1 this morning.
