Roads update – 27 July 2022

The 30m-long steel centre truss of the Cedar Point Bridge was lifted and lowered into place by two massive cranes this morning. The remaining spans will be built out of concrete. Work on the bridge is expected to be completed by the end of August.

Work continues on new bridges on Lynches Creek Road, Campbells Road, Bingeebeebra Road, and Castilles Road and on bridge to pipe projects on Wiangaree Back Road and Ferndale Road.

Grading crews are continuing on flood damage repairs on Collins Creek Road and Hootons Road and are finishing up on Studders Lane. The Studders Lane crew will then move to Collins Creek Road to follow the drainage crew.

Flood damage drainage repair crews are working on McLellands Road and Boomi Creek Road. Another crew is constructing an access track to allow Geotech drilling rigs to access Geneva Bridge so design work can start on the Geneva Bridge landslip. This drainage crew will then move to the Ettrick/Sextonville area.

Council is patching potholes on Clarence Way and Summerland Way. Next on the priority list are Bentley Road and Kyogle Road.

Our road construction crews are working on Hootons Road, Sextonville Road, Theresa Creek Road and Mallanganee Range on the Bruxner Highway. Theresa Creek Road is expected to be sealed on Saturday.

Lions Road remains closed north of Murphy Standfield’s culvert to the border.
