Has any person traveled this road since the flood in march and if so what is the condition?

Also what shire is this road in so that I may get an official update on the road?

I will be traveling this road in Early July.

Thanks in anticipation.

Haven't been up that way for a while, but here is a site that will help you out.

Does not mention this road in that site.
That is why I asked what Shire it is in.
Oh well I had just better ring the Wanaaring PO when I am at Bourke.

The Tib - Wanaaring road is in the Unincorporated area.
But the reason that I put that website link was the fact that you will probably have to travel through some of those areas to get to Tibooburra or Wanaaring, and you can link to all the associated Shires in NSW from that site.
It would be wise to check the various council links from there before you travel.

Dodg,

I found it in EO road conditions and it shows that it is open as of the 6/6/10 but no recent info from travellers.
I found it in the Outback NSW Road Conditions under the Main Roads section

HTH

Dodgr,

The road is a well used major link in the area. Because of the importance of this road it is one of the first to get repairs after a flood. However, from my experience it does not suffer too badly in floods as the water tends to move very slowly at worst.

We were on it in 2000 the day after it opened. It was still flooded in places but was passable. Though looking at your rig pic we were not as heavy as you.

As others have said it is in the unincoporated area, there is no council. the road is maintained by the RTA out of Tib. I would be very suprised if it was closed for more than a week after the flooding went down.

Again others have said it but the road conditions section on this site is very good. If you want to talk to someone about it the tourist info in Bourke would be a good place to start.
