Don't call the Police for road closures

POLICE would like people to stop calling them about road closures.

They have been swamped with calls regarding roads around the region for the last three days and it has had a toll on their efficiency.

They ask people to look at the Council website for either the Gladstone Region Council or Banana Shire or use 13 19 40.

Sergeant Mooney said he would be very grateful if they would use those sites first.

"When people call us we have to use those sites as a reference to tell them about the roads," he said.

"It would really free us up to do our job if they checked them first."
