Road closures and traffic disruptions

Storms can cause flash flooding throughout the region and impact our roads. Creeks, drains, roads and other watercourses can become inundated very quickly, sometimes in a matter of minutes.

While Council makes every effort to advise residents of water over local roads through website and social media updates as well as broadcast information, the speed at which flash flooding occurs, and often just as quickly subsides, makes it extremely difficult for Council to get to every site in time to erect warning signage and remove signage in a timely manner.

Information about our roads is regularly updated during weather events, however these platforms are not monitored on a 24 hour basis.  Please visit Council’s Disaster Dashboard for the latest information regarding Road Conditions.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads manages State controlled roads and motorists can refer to their website at QLD Traffic, for the current status of main roads in the area.

Council, in partnership with police and emergency response groups, is reinforcing the message:

"If it’s flooded forget it."  Motorists should only drive when it is safe to do so.


Traffic disruptions due to Council roadworks

Motorists are advised that the following roads will be subject to changes in traffic management measures and the appropriate signage will be placed to guide motorists through or around the site during the period of construction. Council apologies for any inconvenience.
