Abergowrie Bridge Closure
Hinchinbrook Shire Council advises that the Abergowrie Road at Abergowrie Bridge is currently lapping and that it expects the road may be required to be closed in the coming hours. Residents intending to travel home should consider organising for immediate departure.
Motorists are reminded that there is water over many roads throughout the district and extensive care should be exercised when driving.
Council is endeavouring to provide warning of imminent closures however, this can not be guaranteed with the rapid nature of rise and falls occurring and residents are requested to monitor river conditions and consider their leave arrangements closely.
