"We’ve been informed from West Australian Police and Department of Fire and Emergency Services that the South West and Forrest Highway is more than likely going to be closed tomorrow. As a result, alternative access is required to get to the event. We are working with the WA Police and Department of Fire and Emergency Services moving forward and will provide more updates after we have spoken to them in more details later today. In the meantime, this is the alternate access plan.
The fire, which started Wednesday afternoon and reached emergency status during the night and intoThursday morning, has closed a number of roads, including:
· Forrest Highway, closed between Pinjarra Road and Raymond Road.
· South Western Highway, closed between Coolup townsite and Johnston Road.
