Due to public safety reasons a decision has been made to close Northbourne Avenue for southbound traffic travelling between Antill Street and Barry Drive.
Several trees have fallen along the side of Northbourne Avenue since the storm began.
Given there is predicted wind gusts this afternoon this closure has been made in the interests of public safety.
Detour signage is being erected. The road will be reopened once it is safe to do so. This is expected to be later today.
The ACT Government thanks motorists for their patience.
