Newcastle Link Road has re-opened, but traffic is very heavy at the moment, allow extra travel time.
But, the New England Highway is now closed eastbound at Tarro due to a multi-vehicle crash approaching the Hexham Bridge.
Emergency services and traffic crews are on site working to free a trapped person.
All eastbound traffic is currently being stopped — traffic is heavy with delays back to Beresfield on the New England Highway, while traffic is also heavy on John Renshaw Drive.
Police have set up a crime scene on Newcastle Link Road at Cameron Park after a crash overnight.
Officers say a Holden Commodore hit a tree at about 12:30am.
At this stage it’s known that four people were taken to the John Hunter Hospital including two men in their 30s – one with torso injuries.
Newcastle Link Road is still closed eastbound as of 6am between Woodford Street and Minmi Road so a diversion is in place via Cameron Park Drive, George Booth Drive and Lake Road that rejoins the Link Road around the closure.
Allow extra travel time this morning.
