Commuter chaos: Long delays after multi-vehicle crash

 

Motorists heading southbound on the Pacific Motorway have been urged to seek an alternative route after a multi-vehicle crash in Greenslopes has caused almost an hour-long delay.

Traffic is currently backed up for around 9km between Greenslopes and Suncorp Stadium with delays of 50 minutes or more expected.

The crash shut the left lane at Marquis St on ramp and Pacific Motorway, leaving the right and centre open for traffic.

However, cars are bumper-to-bumper across the Riverside Expressway with Coronation Dr and Hale St also affected. Major delays can be expected around Stanley St and Vulture St in Woolloongabba.

The two-vehicle crash happened at around 2.55pm on Juliette St and the Pacific Motorway on ramp.

Three people were assessed at the scene with two being transported to Princess Alexandra Hospital in a stable condition.

The M3 is the part of the Pacific Motorway that runs from the Brisbane CBD to Eight Mile Plains before becoming the M1.

The Gateway Motorway is also suffering delays up to 30 minutes for about 16km from Banyo to Bald Hills.
