Reconsider non-essential travel

During and immediately after significant floods and storms, please reconsider taking non-essential journeys to affected areas.

Floodwater can damage roads, make causeways impassable and people that have tried to cross flooded roads have been swept away. 

Trees, powerlines and other debris can restrict access to affected areas after a severe storm.

Plan your trip

If travel is essential and unavoidable, it is important to plan your route before you travel to avoid roads that are likely to be closed.

Unsealed Roads OPEN

Please avoid walking or driving through flood waters, it may be deeper and faster flowing than anticipated and/or the road may have suffered extensive damage hidden beneath the water.
