Dam release to close crossing
COLLEGES Crossing is expected to be closed early on Monday morning after releases from the Wivenhoe Dam start on Sunday.
Dam operators are releasing 25 per cent of the Wivenhoe’s drinking capacity to mitigate against future flooding this wet season.
It means Colleges Crossing will be closed for at least nine days from Monday during the release, forcing motorists to use the nearby Mt Crosby Weir crossing.
The Moggill Ferry is expected to keep operating but the upcoming closure of Colleges Crossing is the seventh at the site since October last year.
The SEQ Water Grid Manager said minor tidal flooding along the Brisbane River will not be added to by this weekend’s release.
