Western Explorer Road remains closed


The Western Explorer Road on the West Coast remains closed for safety reasons.

The recent large bushfire in the area has weakened some trees and left them in a potentially hazardous state, especially in the event of strong winds.

The road will be reopened only when it is safe to do so.
