The Princes Highway between Balgownie and Towradgi is now open following a gas leak at Fairy Meadow.
Fire and Rescue NSW closed Jardine Street in Fairy Meadow and the Princes Highway in both directions, evacuating several businesses and nearly 50 people. Firefighters are still investigating the cause of the gas leak.
The gas leak broke out just after 10.30am this morning.
All evacuees have since been allowed to re-enter their homes and business after normal gas readings were recorded.
