The Hawkesbury Local Government area road network consists of local roads which are the responsibility of Council and main roads which are the responsibility of the Roads and Maritime Service (previously Roads and Traffic Authority). Main roads are most commonly main thoroughfares. Due to the divide in responsibility it is important to check both links below for updates to ensure that the route you plan to take is not affected by flooding or other special events.

Lower Portland Ferry
As a general rule the Lower Portland Ferry will be taken out of service when the river height reaches 3 metres (and rising) at Windsor, however this is subject to other variables such as tides, debris loads and inflows from the Colo River.
Council endeavours to keep the ferry operating for as long as possible without compromising safety of passengers or staff.
During significant rainfall and river events users should plan ahead and make alternative arrangements taking into account the potential for the ferry to be out of service.
Alternate road access exists and extra travel time should be factored in to planned journeys.
Ferries at Sackville, Wisemans Ferry and Webbs Creek
These ferries are operated by Roads and Maritime Services and are also affected by river conditions. They may also be taken out of service for safety and operational reasons.
For information about out of service ferries please check Live Traffic NSW hosted by Roads and Maritime Service.
