A crane has been used to move a truck carrying a turbine component en route to the White Rock Wind Farm after it broke down in Glen Innes. 

The incident, which occurred on Monday afternoon, caused major road closures on both Hunter Street and Grafton Road for over 13 hours.

Glen Innes Severn Council Director of Infrastructure Services, Keith Appleby attended the scene and said the truck broke down while turning at the crest of Grafton Road.

“They had a failure with the truck and we’re just trying to organise traffic control at the moment,” Mr Appleby said.

A second truck was also stuck behind the broken down vehicle, blocking off Hunter Street.
