Snake Valley-Smythesdale Road
Works on Snake Valley-Smythesdale Road (between Hopes Lane and Burrumbeet-Hillcrest Road) is underway. Sealing was completed in early April and guard rails are yet to be installed. 

The road is in operation while work is being completed. However, we ask that the road users respect the reduced speed limits and be aware that there may be delays when guard rails are being installed.

Flood-related road closures

Many roads in the Shire have been affected by flooding during October and November 2022, and some are closed. Roads that have been reopened may still be hazardous in places, so please take care and drive with extreme caution. Never drive through flood waters.
