Gas Leak Shuts Down Massive Slice Of Surfers Paradise

A gas leak shut down parts of Surfers Paradise overnight.

Police were forced to cordon off a huge block including the Olympus Holiday Apartments and Cypress Avenue tram stop.

The leak was first detected in the early evening, but trams weren't stopped and an Emergency Declaration wasn't made until later in the night.

Residents didn't have to evacuate, instead told to stay inside.

The leak was fixed early on Thursday morning with the emergency declaration revoked around 2:40am.
