Massive Christmas delays on M1 after two separate crashes

Motorists are being warned to expect delays with two crashes on the M1 as people head off for Christmas lunch.

An accident in the southbound lanes at Eagleby has traffic queued back around 10 kilometres.

A second accident involving several vehicles has blocked lanes at Arundel.


Emergency services are on the scene but already delays are stretching back around 25 ks to Ormeau.

There are also southbound delays on the M1 from Robina to Palm Beach while northbound is slow from Elanora to Palm Beach.

Motorists are being urged to be patient with thousands of people expected on the roads today.
