Nightmare Bruce Hwy traffic as holiday-makers leave Coast
Motorists heading south from a long weekend away on the Sunshine Coast should expect heavy delays as notorious Sunday traffic builds on the Bruce Highway.
Queensland Transport is advising drivers of heavy congestion from the Coast to Brisbane, particularly around Beerburrum, and is urging patience for those heading home.
Photos show the southbound lanes almost at a standstill on the highway, and some drivers have reported Steve Irwin Way is also heavily congested.
It's understood two cars believed to have broken down are making bad traffic even worse around Sippy Downs, after they've pulled over on the shoulder of the highway on-ramp.
Further north, a three-vehicle crash on the Bruce Highway and Old Imbil Rd intersection at Monkland is also causing delays.
The RACQ has warned motorist's they'll be needing to "pack their patience" if they're hitting the motorways, after authorities urged Queenslanders to travel across the state for the one off long weekend.
