MOTORISTS are facing a nightmare commute to work following a serious crash between a motorbike and a car in Parkville, near Melbourne Zoo.

Elliott Avenue, the only direct connection between the Tullamarine and Eastern freeways, is closed between Flemington Rd and Royal Parade.

Traffic is heavy as far back as Footscray in the west and Kew in the east.

VicRoads has urged drivers to seek alternative routes while emergency services remain at the scene.

The East West Link project, scrapped by the State Government, was intended to take heavy traffic off Elliott Ave and provide a route for Melbourne drivers travelling between two of the city’s busiest freeways.
