Where’s the city gone? Heavy fog hampers early commuters to Perth

Early commuters to the Perth CBD could have been mistaken to think the city had disappeared after heavy fog blanketed the metropolitan area on Wednesday morning.

The heavy fog sparked a road weather alert by Main Roads for all roads freeways in the metro area with the reduced visibility making conditions more dangerous.

Drivers were urged to switch on headlights, ensure a safe braking distance and allow extra travel time.

Perth Airport was clogged with the smoke according to Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Angus Moore, but Perth Airport reported no delays at 6:30am.
