Firstly, let me declare an interest: I have been a vegetarian for 49 years, so tasty cow parts are not high on my agenda.

The traffic management centre is reporting three-kilometre queues heading south on the Pacific Highway approaching the pinch-point at the Ewingsdale Road turnoff.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and add at least an extra 10 minutes of travel time.

Emergency services and traffic crews are at the accident site working to clear it as quickly as possible.
