Injured bull causes traffic chaos on major highway

An injured bull has caused huge traffic delays on one of Sydney's major freeways in the city's Upper North Shore.

Motorists have been asked to avoid the northbound commute on the M1 at Mount Colah after ute towing a trailer rolled over.

Emergency services responded to the crash about 7.20am on Tuesday.

A vet was also called to the scene, about 200m north of the Kuring-Gai Chase overpass, as the bull - which was inside the trailer - was seriously injured by the crash.

NSW Police said major delays were expected as a result.

"As traffic delays are extensive, motorists are advised to consider using the Pacific Hwy through Hornsby instead, to join the M1 Pacific Mwy at Berowra," Live Traffic NSW has advised.

According to the website, there are major delays along the road, backing up past the intersection of Alexandria Pde and Millewa Ave in Wahroonga.

The entrance to the NorthConnex tunnel will remain closed until traffic clears.
