Douglas Park Causeway closed in both directions due to fallen tree

Douglas Park Causeway is temporarily closed due to a road hazard this afternoon.

A tree has fallen across the causeway, leading to the road being blocked in both directions.

A Wollondilly Council spokeswoman said a council crew is on the way to the scene.

The incident was caused by strong winds this afternoon.

Weatherzone has reported that winds have reached up to 45km/h across some parts of Macarthur.

Advertiser reader Carina Perry said she had tried to drive across the causeway in the past hour, but was forced to do a U-turn.

Ms Perry said motorists could use either the Menangle or Picton roads as diversions.
