ROAD CONDITIONS & MAINTENANCE

Road conditions and closures can change regularly due to weather conditions.  Motorists are advised to travel according to the road conditions at all times, and please refrain from travelling on closed roads.  Balranald Shire Council appeals to all drivers planning to travel within the Shire area to assist in preventing damage to the unsealed roads by choosing an alternative route or waiting until drier conditions prevail when wet weather occurs.  Flagrant and irresponsible disregard for this appeal could lead to prosecution to the full extent of the law. Appropriate warning signage exists at key locations.
