Multi-vehicle collision closes highway between Heathcote and Tooborac

By The McIvor Times

THE Northern Hwy is closed for a stretch between Heathcote and Tooborac, due to a multi-vehicle collision and grass fire.

Those heading off for the long weekend should consider delaying their trip, or plan ahead to find an alternative route.

Drivers may consider the Hume Freeway, Goulburn Valley Hwy and Bendigo-Murchison Road instead. Some local roads may not be suitable for heavy vehicles.

These closures are under the control of Victoria Police and the CFA. The road will be re-opened when it’s safe to do so.

VicRoads is assisting emergency services with detours and traffic management.
