Information on Road Closures and Safety
Council advises that recent rain has resulted in water over roads in various parts of the Shire.
If you come across a flooded road, simply stop and turn back. Never drive, ride or walk-through floodwater. Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions.
As soon as road closure information becomes available Council will seek to post this on its Facebook page and website. However, Council can only provide accurate and up to date
information on the status of local roads under its control.
For information relating to State Roads, please visit the Transport for NSW Live Traffic website at https://www.livetraffic.com/
or download the free NSW Live Traffic app, available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
Bland Shire Council is unable to provide up to date information via Facebook Messenger, or respond to comments or questions on our regular road status update posts. Facebook comments will be closed on future road condition reports, which are intended for information purposes only.
Council is committed to providing its community the most up to date and accurate information available about the status of local roads and once the status changes it will be posted and/or updated on both Facebook and Council’s website.
Please do not report dangerous or emergency matters through Facebook. Contact Council on 02 6972 2266 so the matter can be assessed in the most efficient and safest way possible. This number is also to be used for updates after hours, or on weekends.
For non-urgent Council matters please email firstname.lastname@example.org and your enquiry will be registered, relayed and responded to within a reasonable time.
For help in a flood, storm or a fallen tree contact NSW State Emergency Service on 132500.
In the event of a life threatening emergency contact Triple Zero 000.
