Swollen river cuts off Kalpowar Rd
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.
CUT OFF: Kalpowar Rdwas closed in two places due to flooding from Kolan River. Traffic from the Bruce Highway could only reach as far as Molangul.
