Traffic at a crawl on Gateway Motorway

RACQ has urged motorists to avoid the Gateway Motorway northbound this morning after a multi-vehicle crash at Tingalpa had traffic banked up for 14 kilometres.

Club spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said the lengthy traffic was causing headaches all the way back to Eight Mile Plains.

“At the moment the left lane is open, but traffic is moving through the area very slowly,” Ms Ritchie said.

“Please delay your travel if you can or plan an alternate route to avoid being stuck in this traffic. 

“These delays aren’t going to clear quickly so if you don’t need to drive anywhere this morning then don’t.

“If you’ve got no choice but to be driving make sure check traffic and plan your journey with RACQ Road Conditions before you leave."
