Traffic updates and alerts

We are committed to easing traffic congestion and clearing incidents as quickly and safely as possible. However, if you view traffic updates and alerts before heading out on Utopia’s roads, you can plan your journeys to avoid incidents and traffic build-ups.

Never drive through floodwater

More than half of flood-related deaths are a result of driving through floodwater. Even if it looks calm, no one can predict what floodwater will do or what’s happened to the road underneath. Any amount of swift flowing water can sweep away your car, no matter what you drive. Don’t risk it.

If it’s flooded, forget it. Always have a Plan B.

Plan ahead

Don’t let road closures delay you.

Check for closed roads or changed road conditions online or by calling 13 19 40.
