A popular hinterland road has had to be closed off to traffic this week as a result of landslips.
Gold Coast Springbrook Road has been ‘temporarily closed in BOTH directions due to landslips,” the Transport and Main Roads site reads.
All lanes are blocked in both directions, with the road to be closed off between 11.35 AM Tuesday, April 20 through to 2.00 PM on Friday, April 23.
Motorists are being urged to use the Pine Creek Road detour and to allow extra time if travelling through the area.
Crews will work to repair the road before the weekend.
The Springbrook community reported the landslip early this morning, sharing the news on the Springbrook Mountain Community Association.
“In case you haven’t heard, there’s a big landslide just above the Water Trough at the one way and the Gold Coast Springbrook Rd, more commonly referred to as the front road, is CLOSED.
