NOTE:

During rain and flood events Warrumbungle Shire Council staff continues to inspect roads and collect information to update road bulletins at regular intervals.

When local unsealed roads are closed to travel, primary producers are kindly requested to reschedule the movement of heavy vehicles until the unsealed sections of the route between their properties and the sealed road network has thoroughly dried out. This includes the movement of headers between properties using unsealed local roads.

During the time of Road Closure, users are reminded that;

  • They may be liable for any damage that they cause to a road that is closed or to their vehicle.
  • Travelling on roads covered with water is extremely dangerous and should be avoided.
  • Road conditions can change without warning and drivers should travel with caution.
  • Unsealed roads damage very easily when they are wet and only essential journeys should be undertaken until these roads dry out.
  • Repairs to damaged roads are not usually possible until both the roads and gravel stockpiles begin to dry out.
  • Council prioritises repairs with higher trafficked roads usually receiving attention first.
  • Lower priority roads may be considered to be brought forward in the program if it is more practical or cost effective to deliver the works along with a higher priority road.
  • Emergency vehicles are exempt from this directive, in the course of responding to legitimate emergencies.
  • While some roads may be open to residents, that reside down the road of closure, the road condition may not be suitable for access, therefore the travel is at the residents own risk.

This information is not exhaustive, it is only current at the time of posting, and should be regarded as a guide only. Motorist may experience different conditions on site to those reported above. As such motorist are reminded to undertake their own assessment as to the level of risk associated with driving on the roads within the Warrumbungle Shire Council area at this time. Roads and road surfaces may be wet or covered with water at culverts and causeways. Motorists are reminded to drive to the road conditions, obey road signs at all times and proceed with extreme caution.
