The pierced tank of a truck caused more than 40 litres of fuel to leak onto the Pacific Highway just south of the Bangalow north entrance yesterday afternoon, causing traffic congestion during the afternoon peak.

Firefighters had to decant the fuel into a hazmat truck before the truck could be moved.

It is the second fuel spill in a week on the soon-to-be bypassed stretch of road. A similar accident during wet weather caused widespread delays on traffic heading south via St Helena last Wednesday.
