MOTORISTS are urged to avoid five major Canberra roads on their commute home after they were damaged by severe weather today (November 23) and last night, according to the ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES).

Following the severe weather, ACTSES is warning motorists to not drive on Constitution Avenue at the London Circuit intersection, Flinders Way, Canberra Avenue (western end), Barton Highway, near the Bellenden Street exit, and Mugga Lane.

Since last night, ACTSES has received 98 requests for assistance, and 37 requests remain outstanding.
