Travellers Urged To Take Care On Roads As Repair Job Continues


Motorists need to stay vigilant out on the roads with more wet weather expected this week and repair work for State and local roads continuing.

Transport for NSW Executive Director Customer coordination, Roger Weeks, said more rain and possible flash flooding is expected along the east coast of the State, particularly the Mid North Coast, from today and with existing damage to the roads drivers need to be careful.

“While we have hundreds of workers on the ground carrying out repairs we are asking people to slow down and drive to the conditions if they are out and about over the next few days,” Mr Weeks said.

“We still have changed traffic conditions in place on some main roads, including the Great Western Highway, Bruxner Highway, Moss Vale Road and Waterfall Way.

“Importantly, it is not just State roads that remain affected, we do have a lot of local roads that were damaged by the severe weather and repairs are now being carried out. We are working closely with local Governments to get these repairs done but motorists need to take care and be alert on all roads.

“If heavy rain does happen as forecast, we ask that everyone consider delaying non-essential travel. If you do need to travel, please allow plenty of extra travel time, slow down and drive to the conditions.

“If you do come across floodwater, turn back and find another way around - never attempt to drive, walk or ride through it. Floodwater can be deeper than you think, and conceal damaged or missing parts of roads.

“Keep up to date with weather conditions and adjust your route if you can to avoid driving into danger. For anyone travelling at night, please be even more vigilant and slow down as damage to road may not be as clear as during the day.

“Our road crews will be out on the ground so please continue to show them your understanding and patience and following the directions of any traffic crew. They are there to help keep you safe on your journey.

“Thank you to everyone for working with us during this challenging time and staying safe while on the roads.”
