TUESDAY, 10.30AM:

Access roads to Mount Canobolas remain closed on Tuesday due to snow and ice.

A further inspection will be held on Wednesday morning to reassess the situation and determine whether the roads can be reopened.

The boom gates are closed to help ensure motorists are not at risk of an accident or being stranded on the mountain.

Cabonne Council’s priority is the safety of all road users.

It will endeavour to open the roads should conditions allow it.

However, if snow or ice make conditions dangerous, the boom gates on the access roads will stay closed.

Drivers are reminded it is an offence to drive past a road-closed sign.
