Gas leak resolved

UPDATE: A QPS spokesperson has confirmed that a gas leak on Scenery Steet was resolved by 10pm last night.

The leak is believed to have been caused by a star picket penetrating a pipeline.

AUGUST 6, 6PM: Police received a call at 4pm Monday August 6 from a man reporting a gas pipe had been hit in Gladstone.

Due to the leak police blocked off Hanson Road to pedestrians and vehicles.

Traffic including trucks and B-doubles were diverted through the main street causing a spectacle for bystanders.

Hanson Road was predicted to be reopened for use after 10pm Monday night.

Bystanders reported that Central Lane was cut off for a little while with the larger vehicles finding the section of road near library square on Goodoon Street a bit of a squeeze.

Fire services were alerted about a second gas leak on Scenery Street at 5.45pm.

The Department of Community Safety's Media and Corporate Communications said both gas leaks occured when a natural gas line was ruptured by workers.
