Motorists are urged to be extra vigilant when travelling around Rolleston this weekend with drovers planning to move approximately 50 head of cattle along the region’s stock route network.
Stock routes, whether they be road reserves or dedicated stock routes, are owned by the state government and managed by the Central Highlands Regional Council.
Cattle drovers are required to obtain the necessary permit from council and abide by guidelines before grazing cattle on a stock route or road reserve.
The mob will be moved from the Planet Creek area to the Rolleston area this Saturday 13 February 2021.
Under Queensland legislation, travelling livestock have right of way and may hold up traffic for 15 minutes at a time. If you encounter stock on the road, slow down and drive slowly when it’s safe to pass.
Warning signs will be put in place to advise oncoming traffic of the cattle’s location and drivers are encouraged to reduce speed.
