BACK UP: Road closures in place across Southern Downs

IF it’s flooded, forget it: That is the mantra repeated by officials as rain continues to fall across the Southern Downs.

Council water manager Seren McKenzie said residents should not enter flooded roads, regardless of whether they had a council road closure sign present.

“Just because signs aren’t up yet doesn’t mean it’s safe to cross,” she said.

“We have a bit more rain coming through now and we want people to remember that.”

The Department of Transport and Main Roads has marked a number of roads as flooded on the Southern Downs, though there are no official closures currently in place.

Flooded roads that remain open:

Warwick Killarney Rd, from Warwick through to Killarney, all lanes affected

Warwick Yangan Rd, Swan Creek, lanes reduced in both directions

Allora Goomburra Rd between the New England Highway and North Branch Rd in Goomburra, reduced speed limit, all lanes affected

Warwick Allora Rd from Allora through to Warwick, water over road, all lanes affected

Dalrymple Creek Rd, all lanes affected

Leyburn Cunningham Rd and Ross St in Pratten, all lanes affected

Toowoomba Karara Rd near the Canal Ck Bridge, south of Leyburn, all lanes affected

Flooded road closures:

Millmerran Leyburn Rd near Kirby Creek, closed in all directions, long delays expected.

Tummaville Rd at North Branch, closed in all directions, long delays expected

Macquarie Dr in Leyburn, closed in both directions, long delays expected
