9 hour detour Silver City hwy closed

When a road or bridge closes we have a small detour of 9 hours. Closed until further notice.

http://m.livetraffic.rta.nsw.gov.au/Incident.aspx?id=40820

Emergency bridge repairs

Silver City Highway on Bunnerungee Bridge over Great Darling Anabranch (approximately 65km north of Wentworth)
Motorists should divert via Hay and Wilcannia using Sturt Hwy, Cobb Hwy and Barrier Hwy - this will add an extra nine hours to your journey.

Motorists choosing to travel via South Australia as an alternative should visit traffic.sa.gov.au for road conditions. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

Makes a 20 minute hold-up on the M25 look a bit insignificant

We also have quarantine between & within States in this area. Depending on which direction you travel you need to eat all your fruit & vegetables before you get to an inspection station otherwise it is a hefty fine. So a double whammy!

These roads are surprisingly busy with freight so it's all going to add costs for the extra fuel, wages & trucks being tied up when they should be doing their next job. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

60 mile detour due to a road closure at Bridge of Orchy earlier this week. When in West Coast Scotland I never let the range drop below 100 miles. You never know when a road is going to be closed and the diversions can be lengthy, just not that lengthy.

Lightwater on Google maps looks like you can drive around or is the water flowing there now.

You can't drive around. That would have been the previous dirt road & even if there is no water the rivers are very sandy. Non 'poodle' wheel terrain & sand tracks!

There is Anabranch Mail Road to the west, but it is dirt & these roads around here get very corrugated & a lot of people really do not want to travel on them. They are like a bar of soap when they get wet, then you get stuck to the floor pan.

They need rain but then all the dirt roads are closed as they get hacked to pieces.

A typical road open/closed sign. Others may be open/closed for trucks/4wd/car.
