    A 35-year-old man has been arrested as a major police incident unfolds on Melbourne's Monash Freeway near Toorak Rd at Glen Iris.

    Bomb Response Unit officers were called to the scene after police are believed to have targeted a prime mover on the freeway at 4:00am.

    The freeway is closed between Kooyong Road and Burke Road.



    Drivers in other vehicles at the scene have been stopped and are being kept away from the immediate area.

    Missed the original notice that the Fwy had been closed.
    I got on at Narre Warren at about 10 minutes to 8.00am, seems it had just been re-opened and there was barely any traffic all the way in to the CBD.

    One of the best runs in I have ever had. :)

  5. I got on at Narre at 7:15 and thought I'd missed that today was a public holiday. Dream run in. :)
