Kyogle Council roads update – afternoon 10 March

One road was opened and another one was closed today as Council crews continue to work to provide residents on flood damaged roads with access.
Hootons Road was re-opened, while Dugans Road was closed. The closure is expected to be temporary.
Good news for Kyogle Road users. One lane of the road past the landslip on the Cawongla Range is expected to open to traffic tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. Traffic flow will be controlled by traffic lights.
Council plans to close Kyogle Road at the landslip site during business hours on weekdays so road crews can continue their work to remediate the landslip. It will close after school buses services have passed the site in the morning and will re-open in the afternoon to allow school buses through. It will then remain open until the following morning.
Council continues to work on the landslip on the Bruxner Highway at the Mallanganee Range, with the hope that the road may open sometime at the weekend.
Other roads that remain closed are:

• Paddys Flat Road (Council expects to be able to inspect the road tomorrow)

• Dyraaba Road (Council will begin grading the northern end of Dyraaba Road this week to make the alternate route safer)

• Lillian Rock Road (work will start next week)

• Tunglebung Creek Road

• Geneva Street, Kyogle

Roads (isolating residents) Council expects to open this week:
• Booths Road (works have begun)
Roads (isolating residents) Council expects to open before the end of the month include:
• Capeen Creek Road (works have begun)
