Border Checks and Big Delays

Heavy delays are being reported this morning - following the closure of the border between Victoria and NSW at midnight last night.

From today, people are only permitted to cross the border under exemption such as medical appointments and work.

Motorists were told to prepare for major congestion on the border for the next 72 hours.

Main check points are at Albury-Wodonga border and Hume Highway.

Speed limits are also enforced with traffic crawling through the check points at 40km/h.

This morning police were conducting checks on cars - with the permits from Service NSW taking some time people can produce a licence and show the postcode verifying where they are headed.

Yesterday NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller warned that the border closure will be a difficult task that will take some time.

Any NSW resident returning will be forced to self-isolate for 14 days when they arrive into NSW.
