Highway reopened after rolled trailer blocks traffic

UPDATE 1.45PM: THE Pacific Hwy has been reopened after a trailer being pulled by a furniture removal truck rolled on the Englands Rd/Stadium Dr roundabout.

Coffs Harbour Highway Patrol Sergeant Jarrod Langan said there were fortunately no injuries after the truck, loaded with furniture, failed to negotiate the roundabout at about 12.06pm.

The rolled trailer blocked both northbound lanes of the highway.

A crane and a heavy-duty tow truck was used to clear the highway.

Sgt Langan said traffic was clearing.

He said it was a reminder drivers of heavy duty vehicles needed to take caution on that "notorious roundabout".
