Council has listed on this webpage only those roads which to its knowledge were closed or partially closed due to flooding. This list will be updated when more current information is provided. Exclusion of a particular road from the list should not be relied on as assurance that the road is currently open and/or trafficable. Many roads throughout the Scenic Rim Region can become impassable for varying periods due to flooding or pavement saturation. Motorists should drive with extra care in wet weather as road conditions throughout the Region can change rapidly. Motorists are advised not to drive in flood waters.
