Does anyone have current info on the state of the Pascoe River crossing on the French Line road from the OTL to Portland Roads up in the cape.

Contemplating going via French Line from Weipa through to Portland Roads.

Thanks
Alan

Hi Alan,

That would be the Frenchman's track. The French line is in the Simpson Desert. I will have up to date info around 18th June. I travel it each year and it never changes, always pretty big washouts, The Pascoe is always 900 to 1 m deep and a technically challenging crossing.

Thanks Dave

Yes. I have my geography mixed up. I meant Frenchman's Track. I did it about 10 years ago so was wondering about current situation. It was quite a rough crossing then with the bow wave occasionally hitting the bonnet.

It hasn't really changed any in that time as far as I can recall. Expect much the same.

Easy crossing east to west, more challenging west to east.
