Attention QLD and NSW people coming to Speed Week

Post by DLRA »

For entrants coming from Queensland and New South Wales. There is a potential blockade of the Wilcannia bridge, from the 13th March, which may require entrants to rethink travelling thru Broken Hill on the Barrier Highway en-route to the lake , at this stage, how long the blockade remains will depend on a response by Government.

So this means extra 480kms round trip. Not complaining, I support the protest.

Hey Chris, there is a dirt (150k) road down the east side of the Darling to Menindee, then bitumen back to Broken Hill,, all up this route adds 70k to the trip,, I have been warned that on the dirt section if wet there are clay sections that can be very slippery

Thanks Staytie. I will use that if required. Always some drama on the trip there or the trip home.
