A scrub fire caused the right-hand median lanes on both sides to close on the Northwestern Motorway at around 11:30 am.
The lanes were closed between St Luke’s Rd and Bond St as it caused a loss of vision for drivers.
Fire and emergency crews were at the scene and put the fire out.
FINAL UPDATE 11:55AM
Both lanes of SH16 between St Lukes Rd and Bond St are now CLEAR following a prior scrub #fire. Thank you for your patience while fire services put out the fire, please be patient while congestion eases. ^ALhttps://t.co/FqlsrHzWI8
