“A large load of sand has been whipped up and is on its whey,” Fire and Rescue NSW said.

“It will be spread across the slippery hazard.”

The road had fully had reopened by 6.30am and motorists were being urged to proceed with caution.

Fire and Rescue said the NSW Environmental Protection Authority would be assessing any cream that had spilled into nearby drains.
