Just wondering if anyone has travelled on the GEH in the last couple of days? Are the fires out or are they still smouldering?
Thanks

Troy,

I haven't travelled it but 7 hours ago the DEC declared the fire safe.
ABC news about fire

DEC has a fire Update webpage:
DEC Fire Updates

So has Main Roads WA but I think they act on advice from DEC
Main Roads Closures

This site has GEH as currently closed but could re-open on 4/12/2008. Probably an error :))
Exploroz Road Conditions

I believe there is a reatime birdseye website of fires currently burning but I can't find it.

Cheers

Eq.

Looking for adventure.

My two elder sons live in Kalgoorlie, as I did for many years. They say that shortages occurred due to the GEH being closed and trucks not being able to get through. I asked myself what happened to good old rail transport? Was this closed as well. I didn't hear of any rail closer due to the fire??????
