Traffic backs up on the M1 following truck accident

CONGESTION is heavy on the Pacific Motorway after a truck carrying litres of chemicals had a container fall onto the road north of the Gold Coast.

It is understood the accident happened while the truck was travelling southbound through Nerang just after 9am.

One lane has been blocked as emergency crews work to remove the container, understood to be containing non-toxic chemicals, from the road.
