Road crews have repaired a large sinkhole that appeared on a north Queensland highway, allowing it to be reopened to traffic.

Queensland’s busiest highway has reopened after a two-metre sinkhole was repaired.

The sinkhole opened up on the Bruce Highway between Bowen and Proserpine in north Queensland on Wednesday night, causing the busy road to be closed in both directions.

A Department of Main Roads spokesman said repairs had been completed on the “large pothole” on Thursday morning.

“The repair works will be monitored over the next few days,” he said in a statement.

“Some additional minor works may be required.”

No one was injured by the incident.
