The road is OPEN and chains must be fitted on all 2WD vehicles from chain station #1 and 4WD must carry chains. Do take care as there has been a frost on the road and it will be slippery in sections. Travelling on the Rainbow Access Road ALL vehicles are required to have snow chains. Please maintain two-way access at all times, giveway to uphill traffic and keep below 40kmh.
