Sandbagging stations open

13 February 2020

The City has opened its three sandbagging stations this morning and they will remain open until 5pm.

They are located at:

 232 Old Pacific Highway, Pimpama (next to City of Gold Coast Coomera Depot)

46 Boyd St, Bilinga (use the service road, next to the City of Gold Coast Tugun Depot)

61 Hutchinson St, Burleigh Heads, (Reedy Creek Waste and Recycling Centre)

Signage is on site to direct motorists to the sandbagging stations.

Please drive carefully and to the conditions.

 

It is important to note that sandbags can reduce the impact of flooding if they’re placed correctly in appropriate locations around  property. They are not waterproof and will not stop the water completely.

Queensland State Emergency Services (SES) offer a useful instructional video on how to sandbag your home and business.
