Train derailment blocked Bruce Highway

THE Bruce Highway was blocked north of Proserpine early Thursday morning after a cane train derailed.

A Wilmar Sugar representative said five full cane bins derailed at a level crossing about 2.10am.

Police controlled traffic around the Gregory-Cannon Valley Rd intersection while Wilmar civil employees cleared the road.

The road was reduced to one-lane traffic until after 4am.

The representative said the loco did not derail and no one was injured in the incident.
