Kyogle roads update – 23 March 2022

Council is still working its way up Capeen Creek Road in a bid to provide access to residents living at the top end of the valley.
One of Council’s bridge crews is putting the finishing touches to the approaches of a bypass track on Duck Creek Road which will allow us to start work on the Capeen Creek Road load-limited bridge on Friday. Council will close the load-limited bridge from 8.30am to 3.30pm to expediate the work.
Council had believed the work on the bypass track was finished yesterday. Unfortunately, this was not the case and we apologise for the error.
Council still expects to re-open the closed bridge on the upper end of Capeen Creek Road, providing access to isolated residents, by mid 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)
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. Council is working to re-open the road to two lanes of traffic by the end of next week.
Meanwhile, Council has also installed a set of traffic lights at a smaller landslip on Kyogle Road near the Bolzicco Road turn-off.
Summerland Way is restricted to one lane of traffic at Burnetts. The single lane closure will be in place for some time.
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.
