Work on the damaged bridge on Tunglebung Creek Road is expected to start tomorrow. If works go to plan, the bridge could be open to traffic tomorrow afternoon.
Weather permitting, work to replace the failed culvert on Dyraaba Road will start next week. Council expects it will take up to two weeks to replace the culvert. In the meantime, a detour via Old Dyraaba Road remains in place.
Other roads that remain closed that have detours in place are:
  •  Lillian Rock Road (detour is expected to be in place long term)
  •  Geneva Street, Kyogle (detour is expected to be in place long term)
Capeen Creek Road is the only road that is closed, isolating residents. There are two load limited bridges between Old Bonalbo and the flood-affected bridge. Council is still working on the first of two side-tracks that will allow us to access the damaged bridge. Council expects to move on to the second bridge next week.
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.
