An extensive oil spill across the Devonport CBD is affecting several major intersections around the city.

The Devonport City Council has issued a community alert, warning drivers to be cautious when travelling through the city.


A council spokesperson said the large spill “originated from a vehicle”.

“Our civil team are on the scene, working hard to place warning signs and clean up as much as possible,” they said.

“However, the extent of the spill makes it difficult to clear immediately.”

Police are informed about the situation and are monitoring the affected areas, council said.

“Please be extra cautious, adhere to the signs and drive safely.”
