It’s Murphy’s Law that traffic problems always happen at peak times. As one Echo drudge was headed for Mum’s Taxi duty at Brunswick Heads School at 3.30 yesterday afternoon, she discovered Tweed Street closed and a major detour in place. The cause: a gas leak at the Caltex servo, which saw police, fire and ambulance in attendance and cars abandoned in the forecourt. Fortunately no one was injured and the leak was quickly plugged.
