Melbourne Freeway CLOSED Until 2PM After A Truck Rolls Over

It’s going to be a morning of commuting hell with the Metropolitan Ring Road closed after a truck crashed and spilt its load of toilet paper overnight.

VicRoads has said the Altona-bound lanes from the Greensborough Highway could be closed until 2PM as crews clear up the incident.

Commuters are advised to plan an alternate route.

Diversions are in place at Grimshaw Street to Plenty Road and heavy traffic is expected on the Greensborough Bypass, Greensborough Highway, Grimshaw Street and Dalton Road.

“It’s going to be closed through the peak we think at this stage,” a Victoria Police spokesman said. “[The accident] happened at about 9.30pm last night. A truck turned off the Greensborough Hwy, onto the Metropolitan Ring Road [M80], the driver has lost control and the truck has rolled onto its side. It’s blocking the left-hand lanes and there will be diversions in place.”.
