Neil Breen has received a Bruce Highway traffic report from Police Minister Mark Ryan.

“It’s bumper-to-bumper with heavy rain and cars,” Mr Ryan told Neil Breen.

“I’m heading from the north side, we’re coming past North Lakes at the moment.”

Mr Ryan reiterated the emergency services advice ‘If it’s flooded, forget it’.

“Put your safety first and do not drive into flooded waters because you’re putting your own life and your family’s lives at risk,” he continued.

“It is busy today and we’re telling everyone slow down and drive to the conditions.”

He added flood warnings are still in place for the Nerang and Coomera rivers.

“This is the day where you need to be very, very careful when you’re driving,” he told Neil Breen.

“Be watching today because forecast rain is perhaps another 100 millilitres today.”
