When the sign says closed

​Tropical cyclones, bushfires, flooding and major crashes all have the potential to close roads. These are in place for your safety, and the safety of emergency services.

While drivers recognise the dangers, risk taking behaviours seem to continue. By ignoring the road closed signage, drivers put themselves and rescuers at risk.

If you plan to drive into incident prone areas, we urge you to please make sure you are prepared, observe all signage in place and NEVER cross flood waters you aren’t sure about.
