Roads & Traffic

Council is responsible for a sealed and unsealed road network of over 1,500km across the region. To protect and prolong the life or our roads, Council works with a number of organisations including the Roads and Maritime Services as well as managing regular maintenance programs.

In the event of flooding, accidents or roadwork, road closure information within NSW can be obtained by visiting the RTA Live Traffic NSW website. The latest closures within our Shire will be available below.


For any enquiries regarding the Road Closure Report please contact Council's Engineering Department on 02 6830 5111 or email council at

Please ensure to check surrounding Road Condition Reports as our unsealed road network connects with other Shires.
