The vehicle was heading south on Weakleys Drive about 5pm when it tipped as it was going over the roundabout at John Renshaw Drive.

Its load of concrete pipes scattered across the road.

Roads and Maritime Services and emergency crews attended the scene shortly after.

The M1 Motorway was closed in both directions and expected to remain closed for some time.

Sergeant Dave Collier, of Traffic and Highway Patrol Maitland, said no one had been injured.

‘‘[The truck] appears to have tried to negotiate the roundabout and may have suffered load shift, which caused the heavy vehicle to roll over,’’ he said.

Traffic was especially congested westbound on John Renshaw Drive and southbound on Weakleys Drive and, as of last night, parts of the road were still closed.
