Queensland Police Service will have detours in place for the duration of the road closure.

The road closure is part of a multi-agency exercise designed to test disaster management capabilities in the district. The community may observe emergency vehicles, sirens, smoke, and wreckage within the vicinity of Longreach and the town common. The exercise will also involve volunteers wearing moulage to simulate serious injuries.  

Residents and visitors should not be alarmed, and are welcome to observe the exercise from a safe distance – however, at all times follow the instructions of emergency services personnel.
