TRAVELLERS must avoid the Cunningham Highway near Gap Creek Bridge, north of Warwick, with large boulders closing the road in both directions.
Police said the road, which is a main route for northerners heading to and from south-east Queensland, will be closed for “an indefinite period” – but it is expected to reopen on Saturday.
A 300-tonne boulder crashed onto the road on Tuesday, blocking both lanes.
Crews are working to remove the boulder and debris, and will assess the damage done as the boulder caused a massive crack in the road surface.
Motorists are advised to seek alternative routes or delay their travel until the road is cleared and repaired.
