Traffic nightmare as holiday-makers escape city
Southeast Queenslanders escaping the city for the long weekend can expect delays as congestion begins to build on roads north of Brisbane.
Traffic is slow on the Bruce Highway from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast with delays up to 40 minutes.
If heading towards the coasts both the Gateway Mwy nthbound and Pacific Mwy sthbound out of Brisbane are already busy #bnetraffic— QLDTrafficMetro (@QLDTrafficMetro) October 2, 2020
Slow points span from Nudgee Beach to Tanwha across the 60km stretch of M1.
Travelling south of the city, traffic is slow at Springwood and then again towards Coomera on the Gold Coast.
Delays crossing the border into Queensland stand around 35 minutes as the new restrictions ease allowing for more New South Wales regions to enter the state.
