TRAFFIC ALERT: Ute fire causing major delays on M1

There are lengthy delays on the M1 after a ute caught fire at Robina.

The driver has managed to pull the Holden ute over to the side of the road.


It’s the latest in a string of incidents on the M1 that has left traffic at a standstill.

An earlier accident at Reedy Creek is also contributing to the delays which stretch back almost to the New South Wales border.

Southbound traffic is also extremely slow from Robina to Palm Beach.

Roads surrounding the M1 are also clogged including Robina Parkway, Robina Town Centre Drive, Somerset Drive and Old Coach Rd.
