Highway Patrol en-route to possible collision on Campbells Bridge Road

Highway Patrol officers are en-route to a possible head-on collision at Campbells Bridge Road, between Glenorchy and Campbells Bridge.

The road is currently being used as a detour from the Western Highway after a fuel tanker rolled on Tuesday morning, causing the major thoroughfare to be shut in both directions.  

A motorist in the area who wished to remain anonymous heard the news over UHF radio and described the scene as “madness”. 

“It’s a narrow road- you have got this secondary road trying to hold mainstream traffic and it’s mad,” the driver said. 

“There are B-doubles passing each other and going off the road to let others through.

“There is dust and traffic everywhere.”

Stawell Sergeant Sandra Marriner said she was aware of a collision in the area, but had no further details.

Highway patrol are making their way to the scene.

More to come.
