Townsville City Council has made sand and sandbags available at two locations should members of the public require them.

Theses locations are:

  • Garbutt – 113 Dalrymple Road, opposite Council’s depot
  • Mount Low – corner of Mount Low Parkway and Bruce Highway (Bushland Beach side of Bruce Highway).

Additional locations are currently being established at the following locations and will be operational later this afternoon:

  • Rasmussen – 43 Allambie Lane, carpark area for the Upper Ross PCYC
  • Hermit Park – corner of Brodie and Boundary Streets, behind Officeworks

Members of the public are advised to bring their own shovel.

Council is receiving reports of water over some local roads as a result of heavy rainfall. Residents are urged to drive to the conditions and not to drive through flood waters. If it’s flooded, forget it.

Members of the public requiring assistance with sandbagging or leaking roofs should contact the SES on 13 25 00.
