Five separate accidents on the Western Ring Road, and two on the West Gate Freeway, have caused traffic mayhem in Melbourne this morning.

In one, at least five vehicles including a truck crashed on the Western Ring Road Altona-bound shortly after 10am.

The M80 Ring Road was closed in both directions between Airport Drive and the Calder Freeway for almost four hours.

The Ring Road has now been reopened, but two Altona-bound lanes remain closed.

The West Gate Freeway was also brought to a standstill this morning in a peak-hour rollover.

At least two out-bound lanes have been closed near Grieve Parade as crews clear the crash.

Authorities initially feared the worst but it’s believed the drivers and passengers emerged with neck injuries.
