Incidents on the Bruce, Pacific and Gateway motorways, as well as a signal fault on Brisbane’s train network, have created chaos for commuters this morning.
In the north, southbound lanes of the Bruce Highway have reopened after being cut following a crash in the early hours of this morning. The Courier Mail reports the incident occurred between Uhlmann and Deception Bay roads, and led to the motorway to close temporarily while crews repaired its surface.
Traffic is now moving slowly but remains backed up beyond Narangba.
In the south, two crashes have led to delays for commuters heading into the city. One incident on the Pacific Motorway northbound after the Gaza Road exit left two lanes blocked for an hour. The lanes have now reopened but QLD Traffic Metro reports that drivers can still expect very long delays. On the Gateway Motorway, an incident in northbound lanes at MacKenzie has since been cleared.
Meanwhile, Translink has been warning of long delays after Ferny Grove line trains were suspended between Mitchelton and Bowen Hills. It follows a signal fault at Windsor and Wilston stations.
“Rail replacement buses are being organised to operate between Bowen Hills and Mitchelton Stations,” a message on the Translink website says.
“A shuttle train will operate between Mitchelton and Ferny Grove stations.”
Commuters have been warned to expect delays of up to an hour.
