Roads closed after flood damage

FLOOD levels might be down, but some roads in the Ipswich region are still in bad condition, with a number of road closures in place.

Mt Crosby Road through Colleges Crossing was still closed yesterday despite the water having dropped under road level.

There was no apparent damage to the road yesterday afternoon, but traffic wardens at the site said an inspection by Main Roads was required before Ipswich City Council could reopen it.

A Main Roads crew was expected to visit the site yesterday afternoon, but the result of the visit was not known when going to print.

A detour via Mt Crosby Weir is open, but motorists can expect traffic delays on Allawah Road and the weir, according to council.

Due to surface damage, the Kholo Bridge at Kholo will remain closed to all traffic until today at the very earliest, with motorists advised to take alternative routes.

Despite the road closure signs in place many motorists are ignoring the warnings and are driving through on the road, chancing their vehicles against the badly damaged road service.

Potholes can be found on many local roads, but a council statement said all such damage would continue to be repaired by their crews.

The Moggill Ferry is still out of service and will be closed until today at the least. Conditions will be reviewed today.
