Bulletin 620 doesn't have that info. This is what I could find.

Strzelecki Track - Innamincka to Merty Merty
Closed
.
The road from Merty Merty to Moomba is open to all vehicles. From Moomba to Innamincka the road is closed due to a small gas release, will be reassessed Tuesday 2nd July.

Re Bulletin 620. I can't explain that.
I have a copy of the email that quotes "Bulletin 620" as the subject. The only content of that email is the gas leak info.
Yes, the SA Outback Roads edition this morning is as you say.

This is a screen-grab from Bulletin 620, dated 1st July 2019.

Bit odd as the Strzelecki Track doesn't actually pass within 90km of Cameron Corner. But I guess we get the picture?

Bit off topic, but has there been recent rain in that region? Still stating pooled water?

I was wondering the same thing! Even out on the old Strzelecki Track ?! Is that standing water from the big floods, or something more recent?

Also...I take it the "Coongie Track" is the track out to Coongie Lake. "Closed for the next few months" ?! If that means through September, then I won't be able to get out there. :(((

I just called the Innimincka Hotel and inquired about the track out to Coongie Lake. They say it is open and plenty of people have been going out there. Makes me wonder how reliable the DPTI info is ?!

For anyone wanting to get around this closure, the Walkers Crossing track is open (and it is a pretty good road into Innamincka) and that is accessible form Moomba via a public road and the Strz is open to Moomba.
No one is saying if the old Strz is open or not either.

Yes Peter, that same bulletin that I posted above says for the Old Strz is "Open to 4WD' with cautions.

Cheers

Problem might be that the Old Strz crosses the main Track relatively close to where the leak is and you would have to go that way.
