Highway to hell as commuters face 8km traffic snarl

IT LOOKS like a giant 'S', which spells a seriously bad run for commuters this morning.

For the third day this week, traffic snarls have stretched beyond the horizon.

This morning's endless bumper-to-bumper queue was caused by two cars that collided on the Pacific Motorway just before the Stanley St exit just about 6am.

Police are saying it might have been caused by poorly timed lane change.

As both cars waited for a tow truck, three lanes were blocked.
