Road update – 24 March 2022

Council is one step closer to providing road access to residents at the top end of Capeen Creek Road after today completing a bypass track for the load-limited bridge on Duck Creek Road.
The bridge crew will now undertake repairs on Mill Bridge, a second load-limited bridge which is preventing Council from getting heavy equipment to the damaged bridge.
Council will close Mill Bridge, weather permitting, from 8am to 4pm to expediate the work. The damaged bridge at the top end of Capeen Creek is still on track to open by mid next week.
Council accelerated work on the new Wynlea Road Bridge after the side track washed away during the flood. The bridge is expected to be open to traffic tomorrow afternoon.
Work to replace the failed culvert on Dyraaba Road continued today. Council expects the road to re-open to traffic tomorrow. 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 have road re-opened to two lanes of traffic by the end of next week.
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.
