I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'approaching' is the definition.
Both the definition and answer are adjectives.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'pull along a road' is the wordplay.
'pull along' becomes 'tow' (towing is a kind of pulling along).
'road' becomes 'rd' (abbreviation).
'tow'+'a'+'rd'='TOWARD'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for toward that I've seen is "In the direction of".)

I've seen this clue in Sydney Morning Herald.
