Fraser Coast police urge drivers to be cautious on wet roads

FRASER Coast police are urging motorists to drive with care as the area, particularly around Maryborough and Hervey Bay, experiences localised heavy rainfall. 

Police have advised motorists to allow extra stopping distances in the wet as roads may be slippery.

If you must travel on the road, exercise extreme caution and do not cross flooded causeways or roadways, the police said.

Many roads are suffering from large volumes of surface water which, along with adverse weather conditions, can make travel extremely hazardous, police added.

Members of the public should be mindful that road conditions and closures will change as creeks and water courses can rise and fall quickly.
