Roads update – 17 June 2022

Council will be forced to close Sextonville Road near Saunders Road late next week to repair a collapsed culvert. Residents will be able to detour via Trentys Road and Dyraaba Road or Knights Road and Bolans Road. Further information on the exact date and time of the road closure will be provided on Monday.

Council’s Clarence Way pothole patching crew is moving around a bit as they tackle the worst of the potholes in different locations on the road. Rest assured the crew will remain on Clarence Way until we can’t get any more coldmix or all the holes are filled.

Another pothole patching crew is working on roads in the Kyogle urban area.

Repairs to the ‘soft spots’ on Roseberry Creek Road stalled during the week, after the excavator on the job broke down. The excavator has now been fixed and will return to Roseberry Creek Road next week.

After the road crew working on Boorabee Creek Road finishes that job and a soft spot on Hillyards Road, they will move to the gravel section of Collins Creek Road.  Temporary repairs to the Collins Creek Road were completed this week to give motorists a safe passage until the crew can get there.

Council is still grading Station Road. Work on drainage at the damaged sealed section of Peacock Creek Road did not start this week due to staff shortages. It is expected to start next week.

Work is continuing on the landslip on Forest Road, with the road closed to all traffic, while repairs to the hill section of Theresa Creek Road beyond Dugans Road have started and are expected to take a couple of weeks to complete.
