Large diesel spill slows Bruxner Hwy traffic

TRAFFIC is being affected in both directions of the Bruxner Highway after a large diesel spill.

A Fire and Rescue NSW spokesman said crews arrived at the scene about 9.50am.

He said the spill stretched for about 1km between Lindendale Rd and McLeans Ridges Rd at Wollongbar.

Multiple lanes in both directions have been affected.

He said it appeared a utility carrying a diesel drum in its tray was the source of the spill.

The ute's driver was alerted to the leak by motorists travelling behind them, the spokesman said.

A Fire and Rescue crew is also helping to contain the spill and Roads and Maritime Service staff are en route.
