According to Live Traffic NSW, the truck crashed about 5am on the highway between Melaleuca Drive and Willina Road.

Intermittent stoppages will be in place during the vehicle salvage operation. This will not be a quick task.

A contra flow is currently in place in both directions of the highway. This is using the northbound carriageway to travel past the accident.

Traffic is still very heavy, with motorists advised to take care and allow for extra travel time.

Earlier, both southbound lanes and one northbound lane was closed.
