Variable road conditions caused by continued rain

Western Plains Regional Council wishes to advise all motorists to exercise caution with continued rain creating variable road conditions locally.

Wherever possible Council has erected advisory and warning signs in areas where water is over the road or other road hazards have been identified. However, the region is currently experiencing a significant rain event and road conditions can change unexpectedly. 

In wet conditions motorists are asked to slow down, plan for additional travel time, obey all warning signs and directions and not drive through stormwaters or flooded water.

Hazardous road conditions including loose gravel, pot holes and water over roads can remain for some time following storm events and may recur with further rain.

For advice on road closures within the Western Plains Regional Council local government area, please contact council’s customer service officers on 6801 4000 (Dubbo) or 6840 1700 (Wellington).

For information on main roads please contact Roads and Maritime Services. 

Major safety hazards can be reported to Council on 6801 4000.
