Part of the Anzac Dr and Travis Rd roundabout remains blocked this evening after a heavy truck tipped on its side.

The truck and trailer unit was travelling east on Travis Rd when it tipped about 5.40pm. The driver was negotiating a right-hand turn onto Anzac Dr.

There were no injuries but a crane will be needed to lift the truck back upright.

the truck and trailer are blocking the outside lane of the roundabout, but the crane needed to lift the truck will block the inside lane for several hours tonight.

Some fuel was leaked initially, but a police spokesman said that had been contained.

Detours are in place, but police recommend that drivers avoid the area.
