Lanes reopen after shattered glass throws M1 into chaos

UPDATE: THINGS are returning to normal on the M1, after a truck lost a load of glass at Pimpama.

Two northbound lanes have now reopened, with emergency services doing their best to clean up the mess.

There are still some residual delays down to Helensvale but they’re expected to clear shortly.

It’s been reported the debris is covering the two left lanes causing some major issues.

There are some very heavy delays from Pimpama all the way down to Helensvale at this stage but it’s likely those delays will increase in the next little while.

Motorists are being urged to take care through that area or avoid it if you can.
