Roads and Safety
If Snowy 2.0 Exploratory Works are approved, work activities will include upgrades to existing roads within Kosciuszko National Park in the Lobs Hole area and in Talbingo, as well as establishment of a construction site, associated works and a worker accommodation camp at Lobs Hole.
Visitors to the region and local residents should exercise caution when driving, as an increase in car and truck movements in the area is expected, particularly along the Snowy Mountains Highway and Link Road. There will be changed traffic conditions at times, including reductions in speed limits, which will be clearly signposted.
Safety is the number one priority for Snowy Hydro so access restrictions for certain recreational areas and roads will be introduced as the project progresses. These access restrictions are to ensure the safety of the public and construction workers. They include closure of:
Lobs Hole Ravine Road
Lobs Hole camping area
Please note these areas are currently open. This web page will be updated regarding the timing of these closures when further information is available.
At times there will be localised impacts from Snowy 2.0, but Snowy Hydro is doing everything possible to minimise disruption to recreational areas and roads.
