Works Finally Underway To Fix Hinterland Roads After Cyclone Debbie

If you've made the trip up to Springbrook or Lamington National Parks over the past year, you would have seen first hand all the damage caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

It's been nearly 11 months since the storm dumped a metre of rain in the hinterland, causing massive landslides and taking out sections of the road.

The good news is, work is now underway to fix Gold Coast-Springbrook Road and Lamington National Park Road.

Major repairs began today funded by the Commonwealth-State Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).

Minister for Law Enforcement and Cyber Security Angus Taylor says the community's been suffering since the big storm.

“While a detour route to Springbrook via Pine Creek Road has been in place, the closure of Gold Coast-Springbrook Road since April 2017 due to safety concerns has had a big impact on the local community,” Mr Taylor said.
