Clarence Valley Council mayor Richie Williamson has called for road users to take care following today's second Pacific Highway closure.

In comes in the wake of the four-vehicle crash at Mororo, about 4km north of Iluka, this afternoon, following this morning's three vehicle crash at Halfway Creek.

Cr Williamson added his voice to our Facebook post earlier.

"Please slow down, take a break and take care," he pleaded.

5.30PM

Queues of up to 2.5km are affecting the Pacific Highway north of Iluka.

An earlier crash, originally reported by Live Traffic NSW as three vehicles but now upgraded to four on their mobile app, caused the closure of the arterial road in both directions.

The highway remains closed in both directions while emergency services, and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter attend the scene.

Motorists are advised to delay their journey as there is no suitable diversion.
