Traffic chaos as drivers leave Brisbane ahead of 6pm lockdown

Motorists travelling south to the Gold Coast on the M1 are being warned traffic is slow through Springwood and Pimpama.

Western Australia, the Northern Territory, South Australia have all closed their borders to Greater Brisbane after the Federal Government declared it a COVID-19 hotspot.

The rush to leave the city comes as the Prime Minister urged residents to “stay where you are”.

“Don’t go anywhere and don’t go home to another state or any other part of your state,” Scott Morrison said.

“Over the next few days, stay where you are.”

Greater Brisbane will enter a three-day lockdown this evening to prevent the spread of the UK COVID-19 strain.

The new restrictions come after a quarantine hotel cleaner from Algester tested positive to the virus yesterday.

From 6pm tonight, Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Moreton, and Redlands will be under the same restrictions introduced in March.

People in the designated lockdown areas will only be able to leave their home for essential reasons including providing or receiving healthcare or support for a vulnerable person, essential shopping within their local area and exercise in your local neighbourhood.
