Ipswich police set up major incident room for floods

A MAJOR incident room has been established at Yamanto police station in preparation for a barrage of flood-related calls.

Ipswich police are concerned that flooding levels could reach the same level as those which caused damage to the city and closed roads in January this year.

With releases being stepped up from Wivenhoe Dam and Brisbane River levels rising, there are also fears that the last direct link from Ipswich to Karana Downs - the Mt Crosby Weir - could be flooded in the next day or two.

The Bremer River is lapping at the bottom of the Lobb St section of the One Mile Bridge and police are still unsure whether or not it will have to close.

The bridge remains open to traffic, however police are keeping a close eye on the crossing, as well as several other flood-prone bridges and causeways.

According to the latest river height information available from the Bureau of Meteorology, some of the more serious flooding is occurring near the Amberley section of Warrill Creek, the the level has reaches 6.61m and was still rising at noon.

The Bremer River reached 5.21m at Spressers Bridge, and was half a metre over the road, however the river was falling just after midday.

Bundamba Creek had broken its banks in places but was yet to get over the Blackstone or Bundamba bridges, with levels falling this afternoon.
