The Sydney motorway erupted in chaos after a giant B-Double blocked the road recently.

The driver of the vehicle was fearful that the truck was too high and wasn’t sure how to reverse the truck on the busy motorway.

Other road users had to put up with delays for over an hour as the truck came to a standstill on the city-bound lanes of the M5 East because the driver thought the truck may be too high for the tunnel.
