Roads open, roads closed – the Council list on March 23 – some 13 roads still closed

Mar 23, 2022

We got hold of this list of roads and their current situation from Hawkesbury Council this afternoon.


We have asked for a timeline for repairs to be completed, so people can get some idea, but we don’t have any more news on that for the moment, and in some cases it would be hard for the Council to give a definitive time for reopening some of these roads, due to the high levels of damage.


Upper Colo Rd, passable for residents…


In the mix here are roads with some major damage, including Greens Road which has still not been repaired since last year’s floods, Upper Colo Rd – though Council says that is useable for residents – and Cornwallis Rd which has suffered massive damage.


Here’s the list as of today, March 23.
