MACKAY res­i­dents are ad­vised to take ex­tra care on the roads this week­end with heavy rain and wind fore­cast.

En­gi­neer­ing and Com­mer­cial In­fra­struc­ture di­rec­tor Ja­son De­vitt en­cour­aged res­i­dents to drive to the con­di­tions, put their head­lights on and slow down.

“Re­mem­ber, if it’s flooded, for­get it,” he said.

“With pro­longed heavy rain, sev­eral roads in our re­gion do be­come prone to flood­ing, so it’s vi­tal driv­ers are safe on the roads.”

An up­dated list of road clo­sures around the re­gion can be found on­line.
