THE Great Western Highway might be open on Tuesday morning, but motorists are urged to drive slow due to snow and ice on the roads.

This busy highway has been subject to numerous closures since Friday due to a cold front sweeping through the region which has brought widespread snow and ice.

An alert by Live Traffic earlier on Tuesday morning said the highway between Raglan and Marrangaroo, and also between Mount Lambie and Meadow Flat have been impacted.

The alert states that snow and ice are in these areas and motorists are urged to drive to the reduced speed limit of 60km/h.

Meanwhile Jenolan Caves Road remains closed to motorists.

This thoroughfare between Jenolan Caves House and Edith Road/Kanangra Walls Road has remained largely closed since early Saturday morning when 90 tourists and 22 staff were trapped for three days.

Early Monday, Chifley Police District Officers issued a stern reminder for motorists to drive to the icy conditions due to a number of accidents.

Near Orange, the roads to Mount Canobolas remain closed due to snow and ice.
