Kyogle roads update — 21 March 2022

Tunglebung Creek Road will re-open to traffic this afternoon after work crews completed repairs to a  flood-damaged bridge on the road.

Work to replace the failed culvert on Dyraaba Road also started today. Progress so far has been better than expected and the work crew is hopeful the project will be completed by the end of the week. 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 by the end of the 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 and bridge network for flood damage, and asks motorists to drive to the condition of the roads.

We ask for residents’ patience while we work through this titanic task and urge people to report any issues they come across by phoning 6632 1611 during business hours or 6626 6800 after hours. You can also email or report an issue via the website at…/jobs-news…/contact/
