Wilcannia bridge closure update(s)

Post by gennyshovel »

13/3/20
The bridge has been closed, and will remain so until 3pm.
There may be occasional times when traffic will be allowed to cross the bridge during the day, but expect lengthy delays
I will update any changes as information becomes available
(The protestors do not have police permission to permanently close the highway, & Police will be in attendance)

Please be respectful to the organizers of this protest, as they have the health of the Barka (darling river) system, and all who rely on it to survive, not just now, but in the future.
