Road conditions January 10 & Road Status Map update

Thanks to all who have contributed over the last few weeks to share knowledge about the safety of Bowen's roads. The rains have made most roads clear now.

However it is SNOWING heavily today at higher elevations - eg Bishops Hill, Cowan Point and Sunset. And is 'sleeting up' in Queen Charlotte Heights.

Please add updates to today's road conditions in the comments section.

Work continues on the road status tool at Bowen2020: the geomarking of road segments is nearing completion. It even includes an ability to report on the weather related status of the new ferry services downtown. See

To find out more or contribute to that project, see the project page.

In the meantime, please post updated road conditions for today in the comments section below.
