Driving on our roads

The vast area that Central Darling Shire covers means that road conditions and closures can change regularly and suddenly.  We have a number of roads which are hundreds of kilometres long, and it is advisable to check not only local conditions, but conditions ahead to ensure you can travel safely.

Use caution when driving on unsealed roads, regardless of the local weather conditions.

When roads are closed by Council, it is an offence to travel on those roads. Disregard for road closures could lead to prosecution under Section 115 of the Roads Act 

Central Darling Shire Council appeals to all drivers planning to travel within the Central Darling 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. 

Please ensure to check surrounding Road Condition Reports as our unsealed road network connects with other areas which can impact on your traveling route.

The latest Road Conditions can be found on our Home Page under Key Links.
