UPDATE @ 8. 8 p.m. | A worsening situation this morning forced two busy roads on the Gold Coast to be closed after a burst water pipe became a sinkhole.

It was originally reported as a major water burst event that had council teams on the ground since the wee hours of the morning.

It appears that the situation has worsened significantly over the course of the morning and a sinkhole is now opening on the road.

It has forced the closure of Hooker Boulevard from the Gold Coast Highway to Rio Vista Boulevard and the closure of Sunshine Boulevard between Hooker Boulevard and Melody Streets.

The Council recently issued a statement on the matter, according to which it will take some time to resolve the problem.

« The damage to the road is extensive and is expected to take a day or two to complete repairs to the aqueduct, ensure that other neighboring services (including adjacent power and telecommunications infrastructure) are restored, and the road again put into operation. “Instruction reads.

EARLIER @ 7. 30 o’clock | Motorists are urged to avoid the Pacific Fair Shopping Center area this morning as a ruptured water pipe is causing serious drama there this morning.

Hooker Boulevard has been closed to traffic from the Gold Coast Highway to Rio Vista.

Traffic is currently being rerouted through the Pacific Fair car park, causing extreme delays for morning commuters.

Council teams are on site trying to repair the damage early in the morning after the main blow.

EARLIER @ 6. 30 o’clock | The council teams are on site this morning for a major event in Mermaid Waters which is causing significant delays for early morning commuters.

The main line is believed to have leaked water onto the street around 1am. 12:00 AM, Sunshine Boulevard between Bacardi Court and Hooker Boulevard.

Motorists are now being rerouted through the Pacific Fair parking lot and the crews are struggling to repair the leak.

Queensland Traffic reports that there is a lot of water on the road and at least one lane is affected.

The council has warned they will be there for a while and warned residents of the area that water disruptions could be expected this morning.

Crews were also in Coolangatta overnight and repaired a broken water pipe around 10 a.m.. 30 o’clock.
