Commuters heading south on the Mitchell Freeway on Wednesday morning were caught up in heavy traffic due to a pedestrian bridge being transported overnight.

“There’s three large sections of this pedestrian bridge so it took a little bit longer than we expected and by the time it reached Hutton Street heading westbound to make that left turn down to Mitchell Freeway southbound it took a little bit longer, hence it broke over to peak hour,” Bernie Delaney from Mainroads told 6PR Breakfast.

Steve and Baz also went inside the traffic jam, by  speaking with commuters stuck on the Freeway or neighbouring roads.
