Newspaper deliveries unfulfilled due to localised flooding

OVER the last 48hrs extensive rain has been impacting the central Queensland to Brisbane regions with several townships receiving over 100+mm in the last 24hrs.

We are experiencing impacts to delivery times due to the precautionary measures that have been undertaken across the network.
