Condamine roads reopen

By Rhianwen Whitney, Thursday February 7, 2013 - 09:21 EDT

All roads have now opened to the town of Condamine on Queensland's Western Downs.

Major flooding closed roads last week.

The Condamine River is now flowing below the bridge on the north side of townand Main Roads' inspectors have given the green light for cars to cross.

However, Mayor Ray Brown says heavy vehicles are still waiting.

"It will be inspected this morning by Main Roads which will hopefully allow for heavy transport to go through but at the moment heavy transport is not allowed through," he said.

"It has a five-tonne load limit but it certainly has allowed that movement of vehicles which is a great relief to the residents of Condamine and the community there to get business back up and going."
