Update: Latest information on roads and public transport affected by flooding in the south of the state

A northbound lane of the Princes Highway remains closed at the site of a landslide on the approach to Kiama Bends.

In Albion Park, Tongarra Road has reopened between Terry Street and the M1 Princes motorway.

Motorists are still urged to avoid non-essential travel.

Motorists who need to travel should continue to exercise extreme caution as many roads are still closed or affected by flooding:

  • Macquarie Pass: The Illawarra Highway is closed in both directions due to flooding.
  • Cambewarra to Fitzroy Falls: Moss Vale Road is closed in both directions due to fallen trees and landslides between Barfield Road and Myra Vale Road.
  • Albion Park: The Illawarra Highway is closed between Tongarra Road and the M1 Princes Highway.

Many other local roads are closed, with motorists advised to check local council pages and social media sites for updates.

Motorists are reminded never to drive through flood waters, to follow the instructions of the emergency services and to exercise extreme caution as conditions change rapidly.

Public transport:

  • On the south coast line:
    • Buses replace trains between Wollongong and Bomaderry due to flooding.
    • Buses are also replacing trains between Thirroul and Waterfall due to flooding at Coalcliff.
  • On the Southern Highlands line:
    • Trains are not running between Moss Vale and Campbelltown due to flooding. A limited replacement bus service is running, but this may change at short notice due to local road closures.
