LOCAL Disaster Coordination Centre Chair and Gympie Regional Council Mayor, Cr Ron Dyne, has called for sightseers to stay away from Gympie business districts affected by flood waters to allow them to get on the job of cleaning up.

Cr Dyne said barricades had been erected in the CBD, and traffic control and SES were in place to manage congestion.

"We're currently seeing a high volume heavy vehicle activity in the area, so we urge people who are not authorised or involved in the clean-up to stay away for their own safety," he said.

Motorists are also urged to be patient on the roads, obey signage and drive to the conditions, with reports of deteriorated road surfaces and changed traffic conditions throughout the region.

Flooded sections of the Bruce Highway in and out of Gympie were opened from 10pm last night.
