The Brisbane Times reported Queensland Police closed Tingira Crescent after a five-metre wide and three-metre deep hole opened on Saturday evening.

RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said it was important residents and motorists obeyed the warnings from emergency services and Noosa Council.

“We know it may be tempting for drivers to go and have a look at the site but it’s critical people stay away for their own safety,” Ms Ritchie said.

“We’ve been informed a specialist consultant will be on site tomorrow to further assess the damage and it’s likely the road will remain closed for at least a week.”

Ms Ritchie said in the wake of wet weather across the south east, it was important drivers were wary of fallen debris and potholes.

“If you’re driving in areas where there’s been a large amount of rainfall, please be on the lookout for any damage on the roads,” she said.

“If you see something that needs to be fixed, you should report it to your local council.”
