A brilliant outline of all road closures especially as we were to depart Newcastle for the Tweed on Thursday with overnights at Nambucca and Coffs. At the moment the Pacific Highway is open it seems. Will follow the Echo closely prior to the possibility of our departure.
All roads crossing the Tweed River, including the motorway, are still closed.
Hope you get through, I am driving Ballina to Byron later today hope it is ok.
