NORTHBOUND lanes on the F6 have been reopened between Bulli Tops and Helensburgh following bushfires that closed the freeway overnight.
The F6 is now fully open in both directions.
A reduced speed limit of 80kmh has been put in place on a 2km section of the freeway to allow a clean up of the site.
Motorists are advised to exercise caution and drive to the conditions whilst travelling on the Freeway.
Last night the F6 was closed in both directions between Helensburgh and Bulli Tops due to the bushfire. Northbound motorists were diverted into Appin Road. Southbound motorists were diverted off the F6 at Helensburgh, to use the Princes Highway or Lawrence Hargrave Drive. Southbound traffic was queued back as far as Waterfall as a result.
Emergency services and RMS traffic crews remain on site.
