A TRUCK rollover on the Woolgoolga bypass section of the Pacific Hwy has closed both southbound lanes.

Motorists are currently being diverted around the crash scene onto Solitary Islands Way through the Woolgoolga township.

The cause of the rollover is still unknown and emergency services are at the scene.

The male driver, believed to be aged in his 50s, managed to remove himself from the truck's cabin and was walking around as the first emergency vehicles arrived.

The driver is reported to have complained only of some chest pain but has been transported to Coffs Harbour Health Campus for further observation.

Motorists are advised to allow additional travel time as traffic is heavier than usual in the area. All northbound lanes remain open.
