4 crashes, break downs cleared from Northern Rivers roads

UPDATE 9.10am: A LIVE Traffic New South Wales spokesman said a number of traffic incidents this morning did not seem to be linked to Falls Festival revellers driving home.

He said while there were hold ups at the festival site itself, once they got onto the highway traffic was steady.

The spokesman confirmed the previous four traffic incidents on our roads have been cleared.

The single vehicle crash at Lismore Rd, Bangalow, was a car rollover that blocked southbound lanes. The spokesman said the female driver was transported to hospital and the scene has been cleared.

There was heavy traffic on the Pacific Highway due to a broken down motor home, but it has now been moved.

The crash at Station St, Mullumbimby, as well as the car rollover near the Condong Sugar Mill (previously reported as Pottsville) have also been cleared.


UPDATE 8.44am: THREE more traffic incidents have been reported on the Northern Rivers.

A caravan has broken down on the Pacific Highway, slowing down traffic heading south.

There are also reports of another car crash at Station St, Mullumbimby, which may be affecting traffic.

Police are on scene at the final incident - a car roll on Clothiers Creek Rd, near Pottsville. 


TUESDAY 8.10am: DRIVERS heading south from Bangalow are in for a slow drive following a crash on Lismore Road.

Emergency services were called this morning to the intersection with Dudgeons Lane following reports of a single vehicle crash.

Southbound traffic has been impacted and motorists are advised to reduce speed and exercise caution.
