Swollen river cuts off Kalpowar Rd

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE swollen Kolan River is ex­pected to soon drop to a level low enough to re­store ac­cess to res­i­dents.

Kalpowar Rd is cut at both the up­per and lower Kolan River cross­ings, with driv­ers from the Bruce High­way only able to get as far as Gaeta. The road links from Glad­stone-Monto Rd at Kalpowar to the Bruce High­way about 30km north of Gin Gin, and res­i­dents in ar­eas like Molan­gul have been cut off for al­most a week.
