Emergency road closures are put in place in emergencies to stop you from going into an area where there is danger for safety reasons. Emergency road closures do not stop you from leaving an area where there is danger.
The closure of roads during an emergency, such as a bushfire, is designed to protect lives. The safety of emergency services and the public is the highest priority in the management of traffic during an emergency.
A tiered system has been developed to assist the control agency of an emergency (SA Country Fire Service for bushfires) to determine who is able to cross road blocks at different stages of an incident.
