THE State Emergency Services (SES) is warning drivers not to ignore road closures with predicted heavy snowfall over the weekend.
Yesterday afternoon Cabonne Council rangers closed access roads to Mount Canobolas with the closures in place on Canobolas Road after the Mountain Tea House and before and after the intersection with Old Canobolas Road, as well as Towac Way and Mitchells Way.
SES controller for Orange Kim Stevens said people wanting to look at the snow should leave their vehicles at the foot of Mount Canobolas and travel on foot.
“When the road’s closed we like to see cars and pedestrians in two different places,” Mr Stevens said.
Mr Stevens said drivers planning to trip up the mountain should check weather conditions before hand.
“We want people to ensure they drive to the appropriate road conditions.”
Mr Stevens said last week’s snowfall resulted in more than 30 people driving to the top of the mountain.
“The road wasn’t shut last week but it will be this week if there’s snow.”
Cabonne Council rangers had closed the road to the mount on Thursday afternoon before reopening it yesterday morning.
