Cattle on the move through Capella
A MASSIVE mob of cattle are expected to reach Capella over the next few days, as drovers walk the 1000-strong head of cattle south along the region's primary stock route.
Drovers plan to walk the mob during daylight through the outskirts of town sometime between Tuesday, September 15-17 with this section of the journey expected to take a few hours.
Residents are asked to avoid using Nagel Rd and Johnson Rd during this time and ensure their pets are under effective control.
The cattle will then continue travelling along the Gregory Hwy to Rolleston. Motorists are urged to be patient and vigilant when encountering the herd.
Under Queensland legislation, travelling livestock have right of way and may hold up traffic for 15 minutes at a time.
Warning signs will be put in place to advise oncoming traffic of the cattle's location and drivers are encouraged to reduce speed.
Stock routes are owned by the State Government and managed by the Central Highlands Regional Council.
Council thanks residents in advance for their cooperation.
