Following the recent nitrate tanker explosion on the Mitchell Highway and the demolition of the Angellala bridge (and two fire tenders) the highway was closed.

A diversion for light vehicles (car, 4WD, and caravans )has now been opened following the opening of the Charleville - Bollon road as a light vehicle (cars, 4WDs and Caravans) a new light vehicle detour ttoday (12th September 2014) using Wheatleigh Road. Wheatleigh Road is approximately 49km south of Charleville, off the CharlevilleBollon Road.

In detail - travelling South from Charleville take the Bollon Charleville Road for 50kms - this is sealed. Then turn right (South) 0nto an unsealed section. After 18kms the unsealed road turns to the west rejoining the Mitchell Highway after a further 50kms. This junction is north of Wyandra.

The detour to the highway is 118kms total distance from Charleville.
Too little time in the bush!
