VicRoads - Emergency Road Closure Snapshot (Polyline)

This dataset presents the location and details of all linear emergency road closures recorded by VicRoads since December 2011. These lines represent closures affecting a length of road and should be used in conjunction with the corresponding point dataset (Emergency Road Closure Points Snapshot).

This data is a historical snapshot only and does not show real-time or current road closure information. This snapshot is updated monthly.

Please note: this dataset is served through the VicRoads API and will automatically reflect any updates made to the data.
