Over-turned Semi causes serious delays on M-1

A SEMI trailer is causing headaches for motorists heading away for the Gold Coast Show long weekend.

The large vehicle reportedly overturned on the M-1 north in Chinderah at Clothiers Creek Road.

Both northbound lanes have been closed and only one southbound lane remains open.


Heavy vehicles are also being forced to pull over and aren’t allowed through (pictured below: Picture courtesy of Linda Driffill through the 102.9 Hot Tomato Facebook page)

<p>If you know anyone planning a trip north from NSW tell them to avoid the area, it's mayhem!

Officials are urging motorists to avoid the area if they can while the RTA works to fix the situation.

Best to travel along Tweed Coast Road if you can.

According to reports, the driver has survived without injuries.
