Prepare for snowy weather on ACT roads this weekend

Released 07/07/2017

The ACT Government is advising motorists and other road users to take care on roads across the ACT, particularly rural roads, unsealed roads and level crossings, with snowy and icy weather predicted over the weekend.

If the predicted snow and cold weather occurs, it is possible a number of rural roads could be affected, along with some unsealed reserve and forestry roads, such as fire trails and management roads.

The public are asked to check TCCS twitter or the website for more information. Further information on exact closures on roads and crossings will be issued as it becomes available. Signage will be erected to advise motorists of conditions in certain areas if required.

Motorists are asked to slow down on roads across the ACT, drive to weather conditions and take special care on unsealed roads. It is the possible the melting snow could also lead to flooding in some areas. Do not drive through flooded low level crossings.

For your own safety please obey all directions from traffic management staff and signage.

Further updates will be provided.
