Road Closures

Bland Shire Council Road Condition Report

All unsealed roads within the Bland Shire Council area, unless listed below, are OPEN to all vehicles.

Motorists are urged to carry out their own risk assessment prior to travel as rain events have caused numerous washouts and debris. Extreme caution should be taken at all times when travelling on any open roads within the Shire.

It is an offence to remove, relocate or drive past closed road signs. This puts other motorists at risk. Offenders can be prosecuted by the NSW Police Force.
