Bus fire and crashes hold up motorway and train lines

LENGTHY delays are expected for rail commuters traveling on the Redcliffe Peninsula line this morning after services were suspended in both directions.

Several crashes, including a bus fire, have also hampered the morning commute for drivers.

Delays are expected to affect commuters for up to an hour as track workers attempt to fix a signal fault.

Queensland Rail this morning advised commuters to consider an alternative route.

"Buses have commenced and departed from Kippa-Ring," their statement read.

"We still please ask customers to allow for additional travel time and to seek alternative arrangements if necessary while our crews work onsite to resolve."

It comes as an intense fire ripped through a bus north of Brisbane.

Fire crews were called to the blaze on Anzac Ave, Rothwell, about 8am where they found the vehicle engulfed in flames.

It took crews less than 20 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

It is understood everyone on board the bus was accounted for and no one was injured.

Police are yet to arrive on scene.

Earlier delays for drivers on the Gateway Motorway have cleared.


DELAYS are expected on the Gateway Motorway after a multi-vehicle crash at Drewvale this morning.

Emergency services were called to the collision about 6.15am.

One person has been taken to Logan Hospital in a stable condition with neck and back pain.

Paramedics also treated two people for minor injuries.

Delays are expected.
