Recommendations for safe travel
Recent weather conditions including heavy rainfall and strong winds have created adverse driving conditions across the state of Tasmania.
As recently as yesterday, there was another serious road incident which resulted in a fatality on the Midlands Highway.
Staff and students driving intercampus as well as locally are currently subject to the adverse weather and road conditions. The hazards and risk factors are commonly broadcast via the regulatory bodies and the media. Currently road closures as a result of issues including flooding, landslides, fallen trees and washed out roads and bridges are being experienced.
The following list is not exhaustive but serves to remind you to think about your safety.
