Delay travels across Blue Mountains, truckies told

Heavy vehicle drivers have been asked to delay travel across the Blue Mountains due to bushfires ravaging the region

October 23, 2013

Truck drivers have been urged to avoid travel across the Blue Mountains today due to concerns the bushfire situation ravaging the area could worsen.

New South Wales Police says non-critical travel on the Great Western Highway between Penrith and Lithgow should be avoided between 6am and midnight as conditions could worsen with little notice.

All long and wide load permits have been revoked and the Bells Line of Road is closed.

Motorists are asked to consider alternate travel arrangements or delay their journeys until otherwise advised.

NSW Police has also asked road users to take notice of advice on variable messaging signs and give way to emergency service vehicles.
