Rather ominous radar at 8.12am,  if Wivenhoe fills Brisbane river certainly will flood major.  Minor flooding Brisbane river will occur from here.

Power outage Darra, on my laptop   ;)

Just returned from Goodna, Ipswich carpark is cut at Oxley, Darra is a mess traffic wise.  Mufreight and daughter number one have both reported that go gates open at Central.

Time to drag out the 'survived the '74 t-shirt' ...

Looks like being a few days of tough stuff.  Get home and stay home if safe.

I was on a Corinda train that got terminated at Taringa due to this. We were told it was the bridge next to McDonalds, and that there was an investigation team out assessing whether it was safe to continue. Ten mins later we were advised that it wasn't. Train staff advised Ipswich bound passengers to return to Roma St with them, where they "might" be able to get another train via Tennyson. Everyone else... Indooroopilly to Corinda... was dumped and left to their own devices. Walked from Taringa to Indooroopilly, past the bridge where the alleged incident allegedly took place. No sign of a truck, no sign of any QR or transport dept investigation team, no sign that any incident had occurred, no sign of any flood waters that could have allegedly swept the alleged truck under the bridge. Looked like a perfectly normal and sound bridge to me.  :-\

Just made it back to Darra from an urgent dash to and from Ipswich Hospital via Goodna.  Ipswich Highway is cut at Redbank.  No direct access to the highway from Goodna either.

Road   Ipswich --> Redbank --> Goodna --> Redbank Plains --> Springfield --> Richlands --> Darra

Green signals on the main line ...

Not much point in moving anywhere now for the next few days.  Stand by ..

The entry and exit points for the CRR will be well above this flood level and no doubt the station at the lower end of the city will be equiped with flood doors which would ensure that it will not go for a swim

actually it was a BCC bus not a truck. I saw the tow truck taking it away. It often has been a truck before. If they started charging drivers like they have finally started charging drivers who attempt to drive through flood waters they might think twice.  Why would the bus be going there anyway.  No flooding.   I also have doubts that engineers got out to inspect it unless they were right on the spot.

City buses to stop running at 1pm
Staff reporters
January 11, 2011

Brisbane CBD buses and busway services will halt at 1pm today and be suspended until further notice, due to flooding.

CityCat and CityFerry services are also cancelled.

All Queensland Rail CityTrain services are being reviewed and will run limited services. These services include the Sunshine Coast, Caboolture, Shorncliffe, Airport, Doomben, Ferny Grove, Cleveland, Ipswich/Rosewood, Gold Coast and Beenleigh lines.

There is limited public transport running outside Brisbane, however there are diversions and disruptions due to flooding. Passengers should check the service updates on the Translink homepage for status updates.

Southeast Queensland commuters have been urged to avoid non-essential travel today and to stay home where possible.

“Severe weather and associated flooding has impacted on all modes of public transport, with bus, ferry and train services all impacted to varying degrees," TransLink chief executive officer Peter Strachan said.

The flood crisis is also impacting on staffing levels, with many transport employees having to remain at home.

Callers to the TransLink Call Centre number 13 12 30 are advised the centre is receiving a very high volume of calls from customers, resulting in extended delays in answering calls.
