Traffic is already heavy on the Pacific Highway, especially heading south from the Bluesfest site, with reader David Pettifer sending through this picture of the situation at 8.30am.

The LiveTraffic website warns delays are to be expected heading towards the Ewingsdale interchange, with the situation likely to be replicated at Woodburn in a few hours.

Traffic heading north is considerably lighter at this stage, although with the Commonwealth Games set to start on the Gold Coast tomorrow, northbound lanes are likely to start clogging up later in the day.
