Emergency services remain on site just outside Blayney where changed traffic conditions are in place and powerlines are believed to have been impacted after a truck ran off the road early on Tuesday morning.

Traffic remains affected in both directions after the crash at the intesection of Browns Creek Road and Millthorpe Road - between Orange and Blayney - with the truck's rear trailer reportedly tipping as a result of the crash too.

Emergency services and Transport for NSW traffic control officers were called to the incident just after 6.30am, with NSW Ambulance paramedics treating the truck's driver for shock at the scene.

Fortunately, he sustained no injuries nor was any other vehicle involved in the accident.

Alternating stop-slow traffic conditions were in place as of 7.20am and were expected to remain for some time due to the extensive clean-up necessary in the area, along with the salvaging of the vehicle.

Blayney Shire Council is reporting, via Facebook, the recovery is estimated to take around four hours.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area is possible or at the least exercise caution and check conditions via the Live Traffic website or app.
