Trucks advised to use New England Highway


Heavy vehicles heading travel to Queensland should use the New England Highway due to the recent floods and road closures

January 31, 2013

Heavy vehicles are advised to travel to Queensland via the New England Highway due to the recent floods and road closures still in place in New South Wales.

Summerland Way is open but the increased traffic volumes and changed traffic conditions are causing major delays.

Heavy vehicles and B-doubles travelling from Newcastle and Sydney can use the New England Highway to travel all the way to Queensland and into Queensland.

For heavy vehicles already on the north coast they can use Summerland Way and the Bruxner Highway as an alternative to the Pacific Highway, which remains closed between Ballina and Grafton.

Authorities have closed the Bruxner Highway between Boggabilla and North Star turn off in both directions due to flooding, along with the Gwydir Highway about 70km west of Grafton at Jackadgery.

The Tweed Valley Way between Leddays Creek Road and the Pacific Highway at Chinderah, and the Carnavon Highway between Garah and Mungindi have also been closed in both directions.

The Newell Highway is open on the NSW side of the border at Goondiwindi.
