Officials to check flood damage to WRC stages
- 26th May 2009, 2:17pm
Some of the heaviest rains in two decades combined with abnormally high tides in recent days to inundate many areas of the Tweed and Kyogle Shires.
Low-lying areas of the Super Special Stage in the town of Murwillumbah were flooded, but rally Clerk of Course Dr Michelle Gatton said an initial survey of some rural gravel roads to be used as Special Stages was encouraging.
â€œOur route covers a very wide area from the coast to around 120 kilometres Inland. There are more than 160 kms involved and itâ€™s likely some have been flooded,â€ Dr Gatton said.
â€œWeâ€™ll need to do a full audit when the conditions improve. Our officials will be getting out there as soon as possible.â€
