The Monaro Highway is closed in both directions between Williamsdale and Royalla following the fatal accident, which occurred just before 3.50am.

ACT Policing advises drivers to find an alternate route. Diversions are in place for ordinary traffic north and southbound, but trucks must seek other routes.
