Western Highway reopened after truck accident

The Western Highway between Ararat and Stawell has reopened after a truck fire closed it overnight in both directions.

Motorists were directed to an alternative route on the Pomonal Rd and Ararat – Halls Hap Rd, through Pomonal and Moyston.

The truck was completely demolished in the fire with only a steel skeleton left behind. Crews will remain on scene this morning to clear a lane still closed near Stawell.
