Congestion building on the M1 motorway and John Renshaw Drive

TRAFFIC is building at the city’s worst pinch points, as holidaymakers make their annual exodus following New Year’s festivities.

The gridlock is heaviest on the M1 motorway approaching John Renshaw Drive and on the New England Highway towards the Hexham Bridge. 

Drivers are being warned to add an additional 15 minutes travel time. 

Traffic is also heavy on Pennant Hills Road and the Pacific Highway in Sydney, and on the Pacific Highway at Woodburn.
