Condamine River level risingBy Fidelis Rego, Thursday March 7, 2013 - 11:21 EDT
River levels are rising slowly at Condamine on southern Queensland's Western Downs.
The Western Downs Council says the Condamine River is at 11 metres this morning and is on track to peak at 11.2 metres later today.
The river has cut the main bridge into town but access is open to the south and east.
The council says it is not expecting the river to subside until the weekend.
