MOTORISTS planning to travel on the Gwydir Highway will need to to make alternate plans.

The Gwydir Highway remains closed in both direction between Glenn Innes and Grafton due to landslips at various locations.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area and not pass through closed or flooded roads.

Motorists can use the Bruxner Highway or the Oxley Highway as an alternative, but due to the extended diversion will need to factor in plenty of additional travel time.

  • These diversions are not suitable for B doubles.

Emergency services, traffic control crews and local council crews are on site.
