Wild weather hampers Brisbane’s popular CityCat services
Bunker, Jonathan M. (2010) Wild weather hampers Brisbane’s popular CityCat services. AITPM Newsletter, 1110, p. 15.
The heavy rain falls that we have been experiencing have had their impact on the public transport system, especially the ferries. September 2010 was the Brisbane area’s wettest on record, and early to mid October has shaped up much the same. So much so that the South East Queensland’s main water storages, the Wivenhoe and Somerset Dams, which are fed by the Stanley and Brisbane Rivers’ upper catchments, have filled to capacity. SEQ Water consequently released the floodgates on the Wivenhoe Dam for the first time in almost a decade, with bipartisan support of State and Local Governments.
