Kyogle Roads update – afternoon 11 March 2022

One lane of the Kyogle Road on the Cawongla Range has re-opened to traffic this afternoon.

Traffic lights are controlling the flow of traffic past the landslip, and motorists are advised to drive with caution.

The road will remain open all weekend. It will be closed again from Monday-Friday from 8.30am to 3.30pm each day to allow works to continue to remediate the site.

The Bruxner Highway at the Mallanganee Road is expected to open to one lane of traffic Saturday afternoon at the earliest. Traffic flow will be controlled by lights once the highway opens.

Roads that remain closed that have detours in place are:
• Bruxner Highway at the Mallanganee Range (works have begun, may open at the weekend)
• Dyraaba Road (grading the northern end of Dyraaba Road has started)
• Lillian Rock Road (the landslip has deteriorated and Council is assessing whether temporary solution is still achievable)
• Tunglebung Creek Road
• Geneva Street, Kyogle

Roads (isolating residents):
• The slip on Dugans Road has deteriorated again, and works to reopen the road will continue next week.
• Capeen Creek Road remains closed at the last bridge. There are two load limited bridges between Old Bonalbo and the last bridge. Council has to construct side tracks around these two bridges before we can repair the damaged bridge. This work is expected to take a couple of weeks to complete.

Residents in these areas that need assistance should contact the SES either by phone 132 500 or via the SES website
