Just when we thought we might have seen the last of the heavy rain for a while, parts of our region over the last six days were hit with significant falls. Due to the rain, a number of roads still remain closed across the region having impacts on people's journey's to and from home. 

Below is the list of 54 Moreton Bay Regional Council roads currently listed as being closed.

As seen during the week, road closures change as weather conditions fluctuate. While it appears the heaviest of the falls have passed, drivers are encouraged to check road conditions over the following days before travelling.

Please remember: If it's flooded, forget it!

  • Drive to prevailing conditions
  • Take caution when crossing any storm water on roadways
  • Do not attempt to traverse creeks and other crossings that are clearly under water
  • Be aware that potholes may form during periods of high rainfall.
  • Report potholes to Council
