Temporary closure of Ashburn road at eastern diversion channel (Roma)

Drivers advised to check for road closures thursday 11 november 2021 1

Maranoa Regional Council wishes to advise residents that due to overnight rain in the upper Bungil catchment, Ashburn Road at the Eastern Diversion Channel in Roma is now closed due to water over road

Closure at the diversion channel is likely to remain in place for the majority of the weekend as the upstream flows reach town. The Bureau of Meteorology is currently predicting the river height at Roma to remain below the minor flood level.

With the widespread rainfall across the Maranoa, Council would like to encourage residents to remain vigilant and take caution when travelling on the roads.  A number of roads have water over road or closed across the region. A full list of current road closures can be found on Maranoa Regional Council’s Disaster Dashboard

Council thanks motorists in advance for their cooperation while the closure is in place.

Remember – If it’s flooded, forget it. Visit Council’s Emergency Management Information Dashboard Dashboard (maranoa.qld.gov.au)  for the latest updates.
