A large convoy of truck drivers gathered across Melbourne this morning, causing traffic chaos in the city.

Up to 200 owner-drivers converged on the city to campaign for a fuel levy due to soaring diesel prices.

VTU secretary and owner driver Luke McCrone told Rebel News that the drivers are in 'desperate need' of a fuel levy and protection from the rise and fall of fuel costs.

Many of the drivers work on major building projects in the city say the price of diesel has made their situation 'unsustainable'.

Drivers blared their horns as the trucks made their way through the city disrupting traffic during the morning traffic peak to get their message heard.
