Goulburn residents in low-lying areas are preparing to evacuate as heavy rains continue across the region.

The region has received more than 100mm since showers began on Monday, forcing numerous road closures.

State Emergency Service spokesman Kevin Anderson said heavy rains were expected to continue throughout Tuesday.

“There’s a likelihood of another 50mm or so in the next few hours,” he said.

“We’re preparing an evacuation warning for low lying parts of Goulburn city. We’re not telling them to evacuate, just telling them to be prepared.”

Low-lying parts along the Wollondilly and Mulwaree Rivers could be affected by any evacuation orders.

Local SES volunteers have responded to about 30 calls for help, but Mr Anderson said the numbers were “starting to ramp up” as rain persisted.

A severe weather warning remains in place for heavy rain and damaging winds and the Bureau of Meteorology is also warning of the potential for flash flooding in some parts of the Southern Tablelands.

NSW Police have closed a number of local roads and are looking to cut off access to Windellama and Range Roads in coming hours.

Gurrundah Road is also closed in two locations, at the Kippalaw Bridge and the causeway near the gas line.

Flooding has also forced the closure of Nerriga Road between Braidwood and Nerriga.

TheKings Highwayat Clyde Mountainwill remain open throughout Tuesday as Palerang Council and Roads and Maritime Services assess the floodwaters.

RMS spokeswoman Marnie Procter said it was possible this week’s events would extend the work.

She said any closures needed would be carried out after the school holidays. RMS would advise the community if this occured.

“Apparently, there was a small slip outside the project area near Pooh Corner about 8pm last night [Monday] which closed one lane for a couple of hours,” Ms Procter said.

“It was removed by Eurobodalla Council. Traffic was able to pass the site during work to remove debris.”

A police spokesman said evacuations were not an issue for the Goulburn region as of 8am.

State Emergency Service volunteers are also reportedly rescuing four cattle that are trapped by a rising river.

Residents can check in to the NSW SES website for the latest details on warnings and evacuations.
