The NSW Victorian border closure caused a painful day on the Lincoln Causeway on Wednesday with trips that normally take 10 to 15 minutes taking up to two hours.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has issued a stern warning to border communities to not travel outside of their regions, and for people not to come into border areas.

Ms Berejiklian said that it was "highly probable" people from the Border could cause a spike in NSW if they travelled outside of the Albury-Wodonga region, and that her government was prepared to make things harder for people to move across the border.

"We absolutely need to find solutions because this is absolutely untenable for our community."
