Flooding leaves $10m roads repair billFriday February 1, 2013 - 10:09 EDT
The Hinchinbrook Shire Mayor says there has been $10 million worth of damage to Ingham's road network after flooding last week.
The town was cut in half after the Herbert River swelled during the heavy downpour.
Rodger Bow says the damage is extensive and the council is yet to put a time frame on when repairs will be carried out.
"We're talking about washouts, damage to the bitumen, potholes, we're talking about public open space facilities and damage there, so that $10 million is going to be stretched across a few things," he said.
