Macquarie Pass is now re-opened in both directions after the truck stuck on one of the bends has been removed.
LiveTraffic is reporting that traffic is back to normal in the area.
The Illawarra Highway is closed in both directions on Macquarie Pass as a truck is stuck on one of the hairpin bends on Monday morning.
According to the Transport Management Centre the incident began around 6:30am, with heavy traffic built up to Albion Park by 7:30am.
Motorists in light vehicles can use Jamberoo Mountain Road. However, heavy vehicles will need to use a longer diversion via the Hume Highway/Motorway, Picton Road and the M1 Princes Motorway.
Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time.
Traffic crews are on site and a heavy tow truck is also on the way.
