FRA Chief Executive Officer John Hutchinson said the recent high winds and ongoing heavy rains had increased flooding and debris on roadways and crossings.

HUTCHINSON: “The heavy rainfall is expected to continue throughout the weekend and we are asking the public, especially motorists to please keep a safe following distance, avoid speeding and avoid areas with water over the road.”

Mr Hutchinson said it was important that the public obeyed road closure signs and did not drive into water of unknown depth and current, as this could be life-threatening.
