Weather conditions in Cobar Shire can change suddenly. Road conditions and closures can change regularly. To check current road conditions within Cobar Shire Council please visit LiveTraffic.
Cobar Shire Council appeals to all drivers planning to travel within the Cobar Shire area to assist in preventing damage to the unsealed roads by choosing an alternative route or waiting until drier conditions prevail when wet weather occurs. Flagrant and irresponsible disregard for this appeal could lead to prosecution to the full extent of the law.
Cobar Shire Council is responsible for the maintenance of all local and regional roads and maintain the Barrier Highway and the Kidman Way under a routine maintenance contract with RMS. When work is being carried out, the public must follow the traffic management procedures onsite before and through the work zone. Sometimes our roads are closed for special events or emergency situations.
