Australasian Transport News (ATN) / June 22, 2015

Parts of remote north South Australia remain impassable to vehicles after heavy rains at the weekend.

Arrabury Road, Cordillo Downs Road (Arrabury turn off to Queensland border and Innamincka to Arrabury turn off) and the Birdsville Inside Track remain closed to all traffic .

Birdsville Track (border to Mungeranie Mungeranie to Marree), Mt Barry to Arkaringa and to San Marino, Balcanoona to Blinman Mt Hopeless toBalcanoona (via Moolawatana) and the Iron Knob to Hiltaba road are open to four-wheel drive vehicles only.

"Travellers and residents in the far north of SA are reminded to keep a close eye on outback road conditions, with closures and restrictions in place due to a large amount of rain," South Australia Police say.

Police released images of a road train that was bogged in Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands to illustrate the point.
