Important Advice Regarding Hunts Road

Gunnedah Shire Council

We are aware that people have been removing road closure signs from Hunts Road.

We fully understand people’s frustration with the closure of Hunts Road between Bushs Lane and Reading Road.

The road has been closed since November 2022 when flooding caused significant damage.

Following the floods, Council identified Hunts Road as one of 51 major Gunnedah Shire sites in need of approval through the NSW Government’s Disaster Recovery Funding, and sent the required submission to Transport for New South Wales.

Despite the significant efforts of Gunnedah Shire Council, that application has not yet been approved. Without that approval, Gunnedah Shire ratepayers would be forced to meet the significant cost of repairing this road.

Gunnedah Shire Council continues to pursue Transport for New South Wales for approval to repair this road through Disaster Recovery Funding, as per the intent of the funding.

In the interim, we thank residents for their patience and ask motorists not to endanger fellow drivers by removing signage.
