Current issues

Armidale Road landslip

The landslip on Armidale Road at Nook Creek Road has been cleared sufficiently to allow traffic to pass. When the site is active traffic controllers will direct traffic. At other times signage will restrict traffic to one way alternating flow. Motorists travelling east will be required to give way to those travelling west. A 40km/h speed limit applies.
