Wingecarribee Shire Council advises that both Old South Road and Range Road will be temporarily closed from 3pm on Friday July 1, 2022 as a precautionary measure in anticipation of the weekend's forecast heavy rainfall.
Both roads will be closed to general traffic with access limited to local residents only.
Range Road will be temporarily closed from the Tourist Road intersection north to the roundabout on Old South Road.
Likewise, Old South Road will be closed from the aforementioned roundabout north to the junction of the Old Hume Highway.
The decision to temporarily close both roads and only permit residential traffic was made in the interests of public safety and following consultation with NSW Police.
Both roads will be reassessed following the predicted heavy rainfall event.
The council apologises for any inconvenience and reminds motorists to never drive through flood waters.
