“I’d like to thank Council workers, Main Roads engineers and the Queensland Police Service forworking collaboratively through the night to rectify the issue,” Mayor Whitney said.
“The crew from the Bowen depot identified the issue last night and acted to close the road before the situation escalated, potentially averting an accident on the highway.
“We’re pleased the damage has been fixed so quickly and the Bruce Highway has been able toopen, as it is the only connecting corridor between Proserpine and Bowen in the Whitsunday local government area,” she said.
