The Lions Rd barricades separating NSW and Queensland have been removed.

Drivers can travel freely between the states without a border pass or proof of a negative covid test.

Lions Rd has been closed twice since the pandemic began.

This stretch of closure was since July 22 until today, Saturday, January 15.

The Facebook page Is Lions Rd open? was inundated with people wanting to hear the news – that yes, the Lions Rd is finally open.

The scenic Lions Rd was built by the community and opened in 1970.
