Traffic misery after Splendour

TRAFFIC is at a painful crawl on the M1 northbound this afternoon as festival-goers return to Queensland from Splendour in the Grass.

The Byron Bay-based music event attracted 42,500 each day of the three-day event, with many taking to the roads to travel back today.

At 1.45pm traffic was extremely heavy all the way from Banora Point to Mudgeeraba, with delays continuing to grow.

Traffic on the Gold Coast Highway was also thick through Currumbin and Burleigh Heads as motorists try to avoid the congestion.
