Wet weather has triggered a landslide in south-east Queensland, with clean up crews working to restore access to roads.

Commutes through Springbrook Road on the Gold Coast were interrupted this morning when part of the cliff above gave way, covering the road in rock and rubble.

The road was immediately closed with work expected to take days to remove the debris.

Springbrook recorded 352mm of rain in a week.

Further west, Beechmont Road remains closed after another landslide caused even more damage after it gave way this week.

A 35-minute detour has been established for locals needing to access their homes.

In Dalby, west of Brisbane, several roads remain closed due to flooding.

On the Gold Coast, a major clean-up is underway, including to clear debris from beaches and roads.

Southport resident Carol Murphy said she became stranded in her apartment after floodwaters inundated her carpark for the second time in a month.

Ms Murphy said the smell of sewage was lingering after covering the ground with waste and toilet paper.

“Go in the hallway where I live, you can still smell it coming up,” she said.

“Basically I was stranded, couldn’t get to my car, wasn’t going to attempt it.”
