The incident occurred around 4.30am and has thrown morning commuters into a traffic snarl that will likely last for most of the morning.

Major incident traffic co-ordinators have imposed diversions in both directions. Some drivers have been seen performing dangerous ‘u-turns’ to try and avoid being locked in the traffic stoppage.

Callers to morning talkback radio were frustrated and advising people planning to travel on the route to reconsider their plans for the day.
