Kyogle Council Roads Update – 16 March 2020

Work to replace the failed culvert on Dyraaba Road will start next week. The culvert collapsed in the floods and Dyraaba Road has been closed since.
Council expects it will take up to two weeks to replace the culvert. In meantime, a detour via Old Dyraaba Road remains in place.
Council has been unable to make the Lillian Rock Road landslip safe in the short term. The road will remain closed and the detour kept in place until a permanent solution is found.
Work on the Dugans Road landslip side track has been completed. Many thanks to the landholder adjoining the road who has allowed Council to construct the side track on their property.
Other roads that remain closed that have detours in place are:
  • Tunglebung Creek Road
  •  Geneva Street, Kyogle (detour is expected to be in place long term)
The situation on the Bruxner Highway, Kyogle Road and Summerland Way remains unchanged.
The Bruxner Highway continues to be restricted to one lane at two locations west of Mummulgum. Landslips have closed one lane of the highway on the Mallanganee Range and near Rogers Road east of Tabulam. Both lane closures are expected to remain in place for some time.
Kyogle Road at the Cawongla Range is closed to all traffic from 8.30am to 3.30 pm on weekdays. It continues to be open to one-lane of traffic outside of these hours and is open all weekend.
Summerland Way is restricted to one lane of traffic at Burnetts. The single lane closure will be in place for some time.
Council continues to assess its road, bridge and infrastructure network for flood damage, while working to restore access to isolated residents.
