Mainfreight Service Announcement | NSW Severe Weather | January 2016
Please be advised adverse weather conditions are currently wreaking havoc across eastern NSW. Heavy rain is battering the coastline causing flash flooding and affecting our service in the regions surrounding:
- Nelson Bay
- Raymond Terrace
- The Entrance
With the severe weather continuing to worsen we are operating with a skeleton crew at our Newcastle depot today. Our operations team and our drivers are doing their best to make deliveries when it is accessible and safe to do so, but please be aware service and outbound linehaul units will be affected.
Looking toward the rest of the week
A severe weather warning for heavy rainfall remains in place for the mid-north coast and Hunter region, with the heaviest rainfall expected to affect the coast between Taree and Newcastle. A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for the northern tablelands and north west slopes. We will keep you updated as more information comes to hand.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time and please be assured our team are focused on delivering the best possible service that the circumstances allow.
