BREAKING: Power Lines down and sparking in Wandoan

POWERLINES are down across Roche Creek Road, near the Wandoan Showgrounds, Friday, August 14.

Ergon Energy spokesman Brett Judge urges the community to avoid the area for safety reasons.

"Ergon crews are on the way to asses and repair the damage," he said.

"The wires are down across the road.

"The lines that are down are not impacting residents access to power."

The Chinchilla News understands representatives of the Western Downs Regional Council were on scene directing traffic at about 1.30pm onward.
