AS CREEKS and rivers rise in Gin Gin the region faces roads being cut off and many areas losing access to vital services.
 

Division 3 Councillor Wayne Honor said the council was coordinating a recovery and identifying the main points of concern.
 

Cr Honor said the community at Doughboy Rd was stranded again.
 

"We're working out howto get them food supplies and medical supplies when required," he said.
 

Cr Honor said Duckpond Rd also was cut off by a number of flooded roads.
 

Monduran was nearly cut off - with 12 residents making their way out to access Bundaberg for supplies.
 

Pine Creek Rd had also been closed due to flooding.
 

"SES is starting to run a regular boat service there," he said.
 

The townships of Gaeta and Wonbah were also suffering rising creeks and extensive road damage with repairs from the effects of ex-tropical cyclone Oswald not completed.
 

Cr Honor said while the roads would continue to break up, the focus was now on getting emergency supplies - flood and medical aid - to those in need.
