LIVE VIDEO: Peak hour standstill on Rocky’s horror flood roads

OF all of Rockhampton's traffic woes, some roads are causing authorities and motorists more headaches than others.

Derby St and Gladstone Road are also at a standstill.

Chaos erupted on Upper Dawson Road as oversized vehicles were banned and one vehicle almost hit power lines. But traffic controllers are trying to maintain the traffic flow on the Bruce Hwy diversion.
