Road repairs almost done a year and a half after Oswald

ALMOST a year and a half after ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald ravaged the Mount Morgan range, repairs are expected to be completed.

Mount Morgan was one area that copped the brunt of Oswald on Rockhampton's second wettest day on record in January 2013.

Torrential rain and wild winds caused 12 landslides on the Burnett Hwy on the Mount Morgan range, cutting the highway in half.

A Transport and Main Roads spokesperson said the repairs, including resurfacing and line marking, was expected to be completed this month, weather permitting.

Razorback Rd is open to traffic travelling between Mount Morgan and Rockhampton.

The spokesperson advised motorists using the road to remain vigilant, drive to the conditions and obey all road signage.
