THE south-bound lanes of the Pacific Highway have been reopened following a truck roll-over, allowing up to 6kms of traffic to begin to dissipate.

Tweed Byron Local Area Command duty officer, Inspector Greg Jago, said the wreckage of the B-Double truck that crashed 500m north of the Byron Bay interchange at Ewingsdale around midnight last night was cleared shortly before 5pm today.

"There is an extensive build up of traffic due to the diversions that have been in place ... but we're hoping to resume normal traffic flows within the hour," Insp Jago said.

"Police are appealing to motorists to continue to be patient."

It has been a horror day for police and emergency service workers on the Pacific Highway with major incidents at Macksville and on the Gold Coast earlier in the day, while further delays were caused by a car catching fire near Pimlico, south of Ballina at about 1.30pm causing traffic delays for about an hour.
