A truck containing electrical goods was on fire at 10:30am on the M1 Pacific Motorway (F3 Freeway) and caused major delays at Mt White Northbound.
For a short time all lanes were closed and traffic was diverted onto the Pacific Highway.
This closure was reduced to 2of3 lanes then 1of3 lanes.
Traffic was very heavy with queues of 3.5kms and lengthy delays
At 11:50am NSWRFS extingished the fire with the assistance of NSW Fire and lanes were in the process of being re-opened.
At 12:10pm the traffic cleared and the Motorway has returned to normal.
The f3 got turned into a motor way D: and there’s a massive truck fire so heaps of lanes are closed. Great 🙁
