Local Road Conditions

Council endeavours to keep residents up to date on current road conditions including during disaster and emergency situations.

Signage Definitions 

Road Closed: Means the road is closed to ALL traffic as it is either flooded or damaged.  

Water Over Road: Means that you can proceed with caution, after making your own assessment. Entering the water is at your own risk. 

Always drive to the conditions of the road

When floodwater starts to go down, do not drive over the roads until the road is open again.

Sometimes the road damage is not known until the road is completely dry and is being driven on again, always ensure that you drive carefully on roads that have been reopened because they may still be drying out.

Whilst Council makes all efforts to ensure that information is accurate and up to date, this data is collated from a range of sources and all users should apply discretion and consider the relevance of this information in regards to their own particular circumstances. Residents are reminded to never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. "If It's Flooded, Forget It."

Further information regarding local conditions can be found on the Hinchinbrook Shire Council, Disaster Dashboard.

Flooded Roads Map

The Queensland Government Floodwater Safety Initiative has created a Flooded Roads Map which uses real-time data and user reports to give you a picture of the flood-risk for your journey, helping you plan a safer route from A to B. You can also report flooding incidents and share your alternative route suggestions to help other drivers arrive safely.
