ROAD CLOSURE: Car and Motorcycle crash

UPDATE:

Traffic information:

The Newell Highway is closed in both directions about 15km south of Narrabri due to a crash involving a car and truck. 

Motorists are advised to avoid the area. 

Motorists needing to travel between Coonabarabran and Narrabri are advised to use the Oxley Highway and Kamilaroi Highway via Gunnedah instead, but this alternative route adds at least one hour to trips.
