Motorcyclists Told To Avoid Section of SPAR Road
Regional Police are advising motorcyclists not to drive on a section of the Sydney Port Access Road after what’s being called an oil-like substance was spilled in the area this afternoon. Police say a vehicle leaked the substance onto the Spar Road, as well as part of Lingan Road and Maloney St. at about 1:30 this afternoon. They add that the substance is slippery and has been treated by the Hazmat department with absorbal and sand, and the treatment has made the roadway unstable for motor vehicles– especially motor cycles. Police say that motorcycles are not to travel on the Spar Road heading from Grand Lake Road to Whitney Pier. Both lanes will be closed until further notice.
