Flash flooding blocks major Brisbane roads

A burst sewer main has forced the shutdown of a major Brisbane road, causing traffic mayhem for morning commuters.

RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said the Centenary Highway was closed northbound at the Jindalee Bridge while emergent repair works were underway.

“We know Urban Utilities crews are on the ground working to rectify the issue, but the road will remained closed until further notice,” Ms Ritchie said.

TransLink’s 406 bus services are being diverted and we’re urging drivers to seek an alternative route and expect delays.”

Ms Ritchie said flash flooding had also impacted roads on Brisbane’s northside.

“The northbound lanes on Gympie Road near the intersection of Beams Road at Carseldine are blocked and the southbound Bruce Highway on-ramp at Anzac Avenue has also been affected,” she said. 

“Regardless of where you are, there’s an important message for everyone – if it’s flooded, you need to forget it.

“Driving through floodwaters means you’ll be putting yourself in danger, along with your passengers and emergency services.”
