MOTORCYCLE SAFETY

SNOWY HYDRO 2.0 FEASIBILITY STUDY
There will be some changed traffic conditions in and around the Snowy Mountains region due to the Snowy Hydro 2.0 Feasibility Study which may affect riders, including:

  • Increased truck movements on the Elliot Way, Link Road and the Snowy Mountains Hwy between the Link Road turn off and Bullocks Hill horse camp area, due to haulage activities
  • Potential for reduced speed limits at times on the Link Road and Snowy Mountains Hwy
  • Vehicles entering/ exiting the Snowy Mountains Hwy at Bullocks Hill horse camp area and Gooandra Hill.

As in previous years there will be an increased Police presence in the Region over the Snowy Ride weekend. The Police have made it clear to us that they are not there to ruin anyone’s weekend but to make sure that the few riders who have not worked it out yet that they cannot turn the Snowy Ride into a race weekend.

Unfortunately the majority of riders pulled up for high speed in the past have not been registered for the Snowy Ride so don’t get to read any of this.

2014 information to riders

There will be the usual cars and bikes but in addition this year there will be two mobile cameras. These cameras have a sign 250m and 50m before them so there is no reason for anyone not to know where they are.

FIND OUT ABOUT ROAD CONDITIONS
Road conditions can change quickly in the Snowy Region. To access the latest information on any planned or unplanned road closures or incidents, check www.livetraffic.com.
