A collision between a car and bus at Yarra Glen this morning caused major traffic delays on major arterials into the city.

Traffic headed for Adelaide Avenue was backed up for kilometres along Yamba Drive and Cotter Road as emergency services attended the accident, that happened just after 8am near the Kent Street off-ramp in Deakin.

Fire and Rescue, and Ambulance crews attended, with five people taken to Canberra Hospital with minor injuries.

Two in a week in the same vicinity is a bit unfortunate. Any news on the detail, like did the bus run into the rear of a car in the T2 lane? Things willbe safer when the light rail starts to run along this stretch because it won’t be sharing the road with other traffic

    It would have been safer if it was kept a Bus only lane with raised curbs to keep private motor vehicles out!

    Like the bus-bahn in Adelaide? They would also have to ban motorcycles and emergency vehicles.
