Truck crash causing major delays for Byron Bay festival-goers

Bad news for anyone travelling through Byron Bay this morning.

There’s been a truck crash on Ewingsdale Road, which is causing major delays in the area.

The Byron Writer’s Festival is also kicking off today, which is contributing to the congestion as hundreds of writers make their way into Byron Bay.


Traffic is slow-moving southbound on the M1, while vehicles are at a standstill on Hinterland Way.

“Traffic is heavy in this vicinity due to a local festival. There are delays on Hinterland Way, Ewingsdale Rd, M1 Pacific Mwy and Myocum Rd,” Live Traffic NSW tweeted.

The accident has since been cleared, however motorists are being urged to allow extra travel time.
