Report a Road Condition

Council staff attempt to monitor road conditions on a daily basis during storm events but this can be hampered by access problems, staff availability and other competing demands. A key criteria for staff travelling around the road network is the personal safety in accordance with WH&S requirements which often prevents quick access. Community assistance in isolated areas provides a valuable support for keeping the information on Live Traffic NSW as relevant as possible.

To report a road condition:

  • Call 6660 0300
    This number is attended 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or
  • Fill out the online form below.
    Once submitted, the nearest Council inspector will visit and assess the condition of the road before making an update to Live Traffic NSW.
