LOCAL infrastructure has taken a massive hit in the past three days.
Record rainfall has resulted in road damages in what South Burnett Mayor Wayne Kratzmann has described as worse than damages in the 2011 floods.
Millions of dollars worth of roads have been damaged from the floodwaters over the past three days.
And much of what has been swept away was recent flood recovery work from the past two years.
Cr Kratzmann and Nanango MP Deb Frecklington travelled throughout Kingaroy and Nanango yesterday surveying damage to the area.
Cr Kratzmann said he felt devastated by the severe damages to the region's roads and infrastructure.
"The majority of the work that we have done since the 2011 floods has been destroyed," he said.
"It is an absolutely deflating feeling to not have even finished our original flood recovery and to have this happen.
"I have received news the work we have been doing out in Coverty in the last few weeks has been completely washed away."
Cr Kratzmann said it was time to kick plans into action.
"We are going to have to work through this and get the ball rolling," he said.
"We are going to fast track approvals and do our best to have the region on the road to repair as soon as we can."
South Burnett tourism destinations, including the dams, have also been a major concern for the council.
"We have had some major damage to council infrastructure out at Boondooma," Cr Kratzmann said.
"Bjelke-Petersen Dam has been 7m over the spillway and still rising while Gordonbrook Dam has been more than 3m, but thankfully it is down to 1.8m over the spillway."
"We're getting hourly reports coming in of new damages so we're trying to keep everyone up to date with road closures."
At the evacuation centre in Murgon there are still 21 people on site. The Nanango site is now closed as all people have moved on, at the Kingaroy Town Hall there are 7 people on site, there are 30 people at Yallakool, 30 at Moffatdale and 250 people on site at Manar Tourist Park.
