Impact of the April 2021 floods across New South Wales

Aerial view of flood damage

In April 2021, NSW experienced a once in a 100 year weather event causing floods across many regional and metropolitan areas.

Many major roads across the network were impacted and our crews have been working hard to open 28 of the 30 affected roads since the flood event.

Crews remain on the ground all over the state working hard to fix damage to the road network. While work is complete in some areas, and well underway in others, it's important to note some roads are much more complex to repair than others due to their location and those works will take additional time to complete.

While we work to restore these roads and rail lines back to their pre-flood conditions, plans have been put in place to re-open impacted roads to keep motorists and freight moving.

Two major roads remain partially closed as they sustained major damage during the flooding event and several major landslips occurred.

Oxley Highway

  • Closed between Mount Seaview Road and Stockyard Creek rest area (near Gingers Creek Roadhouse)

Jenolan Caves Road

  • Open to a single lane between Hampton Road and Duckmaloi Road
  • Closed between Jenolan Caves House and Duckmaloi Road, also known as Five Mile.
