Bruce Hwy meltdown adds to heatwave frustrations

The Bruce Hwy is at a standstill travelling south of the Sunshine Coast, adding to frustrations for motorists on a sweltering summer day.

RACQ has warned motorists "pack their patience" with traffic barely moving southbound from Landsborough to Elimbah.

The congestion builds again through Burpendary.

Almost 10km of congestion starting at the Wild Horse Mountain service centre is causing delays of almost half an hour.
