10 METRES WIDE: A sink hole has created traffic chaos on the Gold Coast.

A major water main break has led to a 10 metre sink hole on the Gold Coast Highway.

Police spent hours at the site directing traffic around the giant hole, which reduced the Gold Coast Highway at Margaret Street in Broadbeach to one lane.

Police signed off from the area just before 2pm (local time), but repairs are on-going.

Gold Coast Council staff have been on the scene since early this morning, working to patch the road.

Motorists were still advised to avoid the area.
