1000 head of cattle set to walk from Clermont to Rolleston

A STOCK route travel permit has been approved for 1000 head of cattle to walk the Gregory Highway from Clermont to Rolleston.

The cattle will pass through Capella, Emerald and Springsure and are expected to start their journey in late

The journey could take some months and motorists are urged to be patient when encountering the herd.

Under Queensland legislation, travelling livestock have right of way on a highway and may hold up traffic for
15 minutes at a time.

Warning signs will be put in place to advise oncoming traffic of the cattle's location and drivers are
encouraged to reduce speed.

The livestock will be on the roadside during daylight hours only and will be restrained behind fences off the
road during the night.

Stock routes are owned by the State Government and managed by the Central Highlands Regional Council.

Council thanks the community for their co-operation and understanding during this time.

To make an enquiry or for further information please call council on 1300 242 686 or email
