Motorists heading home from Brisbane this afternoon are being urged to be patient, with Friday traffic causing chaos for drivers.

There’s a short reprieve before traffic begins to build again southbound from Robina to Burleigh.


It’s then bumper to bumper northbound from Tugun to Reedy Creek.

According to the Department of Traffic and Main Roads, there’s no known incidents contributing to the delays.

Drivers are being urged to be patient and allow for extra travel time.
