Kyogle roads update – 22 March 2022

A damaged bridge at the top end of Capeen Creek Road remains closed and continues to isolate residents.
The first of the two load-limited bridges on the same road, which are stopping Council from getting heavy equipment and materials to the damaged bridge, has now been bypassed.
Work on the second bridge will start tomorrow and Council expects to repair and re-open the third bridge by the middle of next week.
Work to replace the failed culvert on Dyraaba Road continued today. The road may re-open at the end of the week.
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)
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.
