Temporary closure of Hume Highway rest area to truckies

Hume Highway

Truckies will have to bypass the Tumblong rest area near Gundagai, NSW, during weekdays between 7am and 5pm until later this month.

While motorists can gain access to the facility during those times, with the guidance of traffic control, truckies are out of luck.

“For the safety of motorists and workers Tumblong rest area will be closed to heavy vehicles to allow road base material to be transported safely away from a nearby stockpile,” Transport for NSW said in statement announcing the news.

Weather permitting, unfettered access to the site, located 12km south of Gundagai on the corner of Tumblong Road and the Hume Highway, will resume for truckies on December 22.

Until then, truckies are advised to use the nearby Big Ben rest area, 10km south of Gundagai, or Bobacumbola rest area, 27km south of Gundagai.
