Impacts to NSW State roads and rail lines from natural disasters
During natural disasters key freight routes along State roads can be closed for extended durations.
Current road and rail line closure information
When road and rail lines are closed Transport for NSW needs to assess the overall impact of natural disasters on our assets and undertake safety reviews and inspections.
Our focus is always to prioritise safety for all customers, effectively assess the damage and re-open the roads and rail lines that will keep people and freight moving.
The purpose of this webpage is to provide information about estimated timeframes to re-open affected transport assets.
For all real time traffic and route information updates, please visit LiveTraffic.
Transport for NSW encourages all freight operators to check the Restricted Access Vehicle interactive map to determine appropriate alternative routes for their combination.
Please visit the State Emergency Service (SES) website for all current evacuation orders that are still in place.
The current State road closures associated with natural disasters are listed below, with information on damage and safety assessments. This page is updated as required, but please consult live traffic as well to plan your route on the day of travel.
Information is correct as of 16 June 2022.
