WANGARATTA Council has been left frustrated by motorists who drive around road closed signs.

While floodwater has started to subside, a number of roads, including Oxley Flats Rd, remain closed following heavy rain.

“We’ve had many instances where drivers have gone around road closed signs, or actually removed the signs,” council’s director of infrastructure services Alan Clark said.

“You are putting yourselves, as well as council staff and emergency services in danger.”
