DRC UPDATE, 4pm Sunday 23 October 2022

Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) working closely with SES, Transport for NSW and local Police are now closing Emile Serisier Bridge.

As a result of the closure, changed traffic conditions are in place to ease congestion and accommodate the significant increase in heavy vehicle movements along Cobra Street. 

  • Access to Macquarie Street from the LH Ford Bridge will be limited
  • There will be no ability to turn right from side streets onto Cobra Street, from Macquarie Street to Darling Street

A number of roads across the Local Government Area are being monitored, and may close, due to increased water levels. Stay informed using Dubbo.nsw.gov.au/floods and livetraffic.com
