Road slips gouge into Tweed roads creating dangers

MAJOR land slips caused by heavy rainfall have destroyed roads across the Tweed.

A large road slip at Rowlands Creek Rd, near Uki, has ripped away about half of the road surface and left a steep and hazardous embankment.

Motorists are encouraged to exercise extreme caution and avoid driving on roads where the slips have occurred, the council has advised.

Road slips have also affected Numinbah Rd between Crystal Creek and Queensland border.

Tweed Mayor Barry Longland said despite considerable flood damage, the shire had been lucky.

"Overall you'd have to say the Tweed has been lucky in missing what could have been a major flood and widespread devastation," he said.

"Having said that, there would no doubt be many tales of individual hardship and damage to properties, businesses and agricultural crops across the Tweed."
