Major delays after car catches fire on M1

There are some major delays on the M1 this afternoon after a car caught fire on the Tugun bypass.

It’s happened in the southbound lanes just on the New South Wales side of the border approaching the Tugun Tunnel.

One southbound lane is currently blocked with traffic queued back for around 4 kilometres.


Northbound traffic is also slow approaching the site of the car blaze.

There are reports some southbound motorists are attempting to do u-turns in the emergency lane.

It’s not clear if anyone has been injured.
