Coonoongibber Creek Road closure
7 February 2020
We wish to advise that Coonoongibber Creek Rd south of the Imbil State Forest boundary will be closed until further notice for plantation harvesting and timber haulage operations.
Due to the location of the active harvesting front along this section of road, trees will be felled across the road and an increased volume of trucks and heavy machinery will be working on and adjacent to the road. The safety of all road users was at the forefront of our decision to temporarily close the road.
Although it isn’t a gazetted thoroughfare, we recognise that this road is a popular short cut between north and south areas of Imbil State Forest, and for local recreational usage including access to the rockpools in the Coonoon Logging Area. HQPlantations will endeavour to keep the closure as brief as possible.
The closure will be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week until further notice, and the signage has been removed.
Please be aware that you may not enter any roads or trails in an active forest harvesting area without proper authorisation at any time of the day or night.
An active harvesting area is a high risk work site and dangers to personal safety are very real even if no harvesting machinery or logging trucks are immediately present.
Barriers and ‘Do Not Proceed’ signage must be observed for the entire duration of the harvesting and haulage period.
These signs apply to all people in trucks and cars or on motorcycles, bicycles and horses, and even people hiking, walking or exercising their dogs.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
