Access roads to Mount Canobolas have been closed by snow and ice.

Boom gates were closed this afternoon (Friday 10 May 2019) and Cabonne Council staff will conduct an inspection tomorrow morning to determine whether the roads can be reopened. However, forecasts indicate the weather may not clear until Sunday.

The roads have been 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 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 remain closed.

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