Local Road Conditions

Council endeavours to keep residents up to date on current road conditions including during disaster and emergency situations.

Always drive to the conditions of the road

Whilst Council makes all efforts to ensure that information is accurate and up to date, it is not possible for Council to provide current information on all roads in the district. 

Road users on all roads must remain vigilant to the possibility of water over road or damaged road conditions, and should apply discretion and consider the relevance of this information with regards to their own particular circumstances.

Residents are reminded to never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. "If It's flooded, forget It."  Exemptions may apply in situations where an authorised agency opens a submerged road under controlled traffic circumstances.

Signage Definitions 

Road Closed: Means the road is closed to ALL traffic.  

Water Over Road: Means that you can proceed with caution, after making your own assessment. Entering the water is at your own risk. 


For information regarding roadworks that Council is undertaking please visit the Current Roadworks page.
