Bruce Hwy crawl as masses head north for long weekend

THE LURE of a long weekend on the Coast has brought the Bruce Highway to a standstill already this morning as masses of motorists make their way north past Brisbane.

Southbound drivers have reported northbound cars are already stopping such is the volume of traffic this morning, with a choke point forming about 5km south of the Caloundra Road exit.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads traffic cameras are showing a thick stream of traffic headed north out through the Bruce Highway-Caboolture/Bribie Island interchange as sun seekers look set for a slow trip north to kick off Australia Day.
