Main Roads WA has new site for listing closures and works. Looks a big improvement on the old which often had me clicking on links chasing info.

Maybe add this to your favourites.

Only as good as having a laptop or internet access with you.

Not always permitted/availible when your driving - their twitter feeds are usually very accurate though as they often pool resources from WAPOL stations out in field

Pray tell!

How do you legally access a Twitter feed when driving then?

Exactly rocco

A great piece of info put up to help others out and someone has to start another pissing contest because they know better.

Thanks for putting the info up.

Bookmarked it when Rocco first posted it. Right next to the SA NSW and QLD ones. Anyone know if the NT has a page?

"How do you legally access a Twitter feed when driving then?"

Use your mobile phone. And stop driving while you do it. Rocket science?

Ivan, the NT guys have updated their webpile. It was pretty poor before and needed a bit of burrowing to find anything. Haven't explored their "new, improved" version but this is the link.

Yes, for road conditions Ivan NT Road Reports. Like in Western Australian road conditions, this a revised site, so I haven't used it much yet.

Yes!

I understand the legalities of using a mobile device whilst driving!

My point is Dean K3 negates his own reasoning for not liking the app by his comment- "Only as good as having a laptop or internet access with you." and "Not always permitted/availible when your driving..."

A great piece of helpful info was shared only to be shot down with completely foundless reasoning.

Thanks Rocco and Equinox for the links.

Another useful link for road closures and fires in WA parks from the Parks and Wildlife Service.

Just last week i saw a facebook video of the GNH between Broome and Derby was flooded at the Logue river with road scouring and being undercut by the flood waters. The website makes no mention of caution, roadworks or lane closure. Is this correct.

THE road was closed for several days at the time which was indicated on the site.

I Just looked now and it is shown as open with caution due to damage and roadworks and to expect delays.

Cheers
