Road and facility closures 

Find out which roads, bridges, parks, roads, and wetlands are closed or disrupted. 

The road network has suffered significant damage with large potholes and sections of road badly impacted. Crews are prioritising high volume roads and areas where damage is a safety issue.  

Please do not drive through road closed signs. These signs are in place as we are unsure of the condition and safety of the road. 

Ensure you drive to the conditions of the road as they may be damaged by water. 

Real-time traffic conditions are available online at the VicRoads website or via the VicTraffic mobile app. 

Please report road issues to Council (if it is a Council-managed road) by calling (03) 5772 0333.
