We were stationary for about half an hour which was frustrating after having to detour. Two utes turned up and did slow/stop sign but not sure how long they hung around for.

Thanks, ridiculous 6km long traffic build up on North side of Bungendore on Tarago road,due to 2 x roadworks traffic lights on 24/7 with one minute long delays between light changes.
One of these is privately owned for new Brinkmeyer, North Bungendore/Elmsley subdivision.
