A 36-wheeler truck carrying 78 tonnes of soil rolled over and landed in a ditch along South Western Highway on Wednesday with road users facing traffic delays heading in both directions. The incident occurred at 1.05pm on August 10 along the South Western Highway near Hamel, it is unknown how the rollover occurred but the 36-wheeled truck caused damage to a highway-adjacent property’s fencing. A load of 78 tonnes of soil spilled onto the nearby property and the driver, a man in his 40’s, left the scene uninjured. Waroona police, via Twitter, asked road users to avoid the area and seek an alternative route as Main Road traffic management and recovery crews worked into the evening. The tweet also outlined traffic delays for both northbound and southbound traffic. The notoriously deadly stretch of road was labelled regional WA’s riskiest road after a survey conducted by the RAC identified a number of South West highways and intersections were among the worst in the State. The survey of more than 10,000 people found the road’s narrow lanes, lack of overtaking opportunities and the number of tight and/or blind turns contributed to its bad reputation. More to come.
