A car has ploughed into a median strips steel fencing and a garbage truck in Sydney’s South this afternoon, causing the Princes Highway to shut down.

The silver Honda was left dangling in the middle of the fence as the traffic backed up at Rocky Point Road, Kogarah.

Emergency service has since released the car but are now cleaning up the scene.

One lane remains closed in each direction while a signal pole and fence repairs are now taking place.

Traffic is heavy in both directions. No one was injured.
