Bushfire at Drake – highway diversions through Grafton

THE Bruxner Highway is closed in both directions in Drake, about 50 kilometres east of Tenterfield, due to a bushfire.

Motorists travelling between Tenterfield and Casino are advised to delay their journey.

Motorists who need to travel can use the Gwydir Highway and Summerland Way and travel via Glen Innes and Grafton instead, but this will add considerable time to journeys.

Emergency services are on site working to put the fire out and traffic crews are also responding.
