There is a large water catchment from Redbank Plains Road in the south, Queen Street in the east and west to Stuart Street.
Because of the recent rain which has saturated the ground, Albert Street can flood within 15 minutes of a torrential downpour followed by Smiths Road between Albert Street and Arne Street.
Both roads were flooded this afternoon shortly after 3.00pm.
Cars negotiate the Albert Street floodway at Goodna.
Twenty years ago, the Ipswich City Council acquired a residential property on the western side of Albert Street which was badly affected by floodwater several times a year.
Local Councillor Paul Tully has asked drivers to take extreme care when floodwater is covering Albert Street or Smiths Road.
