A bus coming out of the Bennetts Motor Inn on 15th Ave created huge traffic queues when it became stuck, blocking one and half lanes during rush hour traffic on Friday night.
The bus driver told SunLive he was coming out of the Inn just before 5pm when the back of the bus got stuck on the incline and his rear wheels spun.

“It would have been faster to go over the bridge and go through the Mount,” says a motorist who got stuck in traffic.
The man, who asked not to be named, says he had seen buses stuck on Turret Road before when they came out of the motel but never on 15th Ave.
“It was chaos.”
Police assisted with traffic control and tried to clear the backlog of traffic by detouring motorists down Burrows Street and back onto Turret Road.
Traffic was delayed for more than an hour until the bus was removed from the road.
