Please delay travel along the Monaro hwy north of Cooma. A multi vehicle accident has closed the road in both directions until further notice.

 

Comment on Facebook

Police have advised the highway is likely to be closed for several hours. While diversions are established motorists are asked to delay travel through the area.

I don't drive this road often, I go the back dirt roads which are empty. I did drove it last Thursday night and couldn't believe the amount of vehicles in each direction that were on it. I thought to myself, why isn't this road divided yet? As a minimum there needs to be more overtaking lanes and spaces.

just came through, all open

Hope everyone is ok 💜
