Two lanes are now open eastbound to allow traffic to move, however motorists are urged to take care due to the amount of smoke obstructing the view of the road.

The smoke is also causing delays on the westbound carriage way, due to poor visibility.

The vehicle caught alight at around 11.45pm this morning, and fire crews are at the scene.
