Motorists are facing a horror run home this evening with huge delays across the Gold Coast.
The M1 on the southern Coast is particularly bad this afternoon especially for those heading northbound.
Traffic is crawling from Tugun to Mudgeeraba adding in excess of 30 minutes to the trip.

Southbound traffic is also very slow from Robina to Palm Beach.
According to Transport and Main Roads, no accidents have been reported through that stretch.
The congestion is also clogging up other roads leading towards the M1 including the on ramp at Burleigh West, Bermuda St and Robina Parkway.
There are also extensive delays on the Gold Coast Highway through Palm Beach, Burleigh Heads and Miami as motorists try and avoid the M1.
The M1 delays are not confined to the southern end though with significant delays in both directions between Coomera and Smith St.
Smith St itself is also extremely slow while there has been an accident on Brisbane Rd at Coombabah.
