Roads update – 3 August 2022

Council no longer needs to close Wiangaree Back Road today (Wednesday) and tomorrow (Thursday). Council is converting a bridge to pipes and has been able to position the large crane needed  to lift the pipes into place in such a way to allow the road to stay open. However, expect delays if you choose to use the road today and tomorrow.

Council finished work on the new Castilles Road Bridge today and we are continuing work on new bridges on Ferndale Road, Lynches Creek Road, Campbells Road, and Bingeebeebra Road. Work is also continuing on the new Cedar Point Bridge.

Council is replacing a culvert on Collins Creek Road, while a grading crew also undertakes flood damage repairs.  Drainage crews are working on McLellands Road, Boomi Creek Road, Ryans Creek Road, Baraimal Lane, Williams Road, and will start on the Omagh Road tomorrow.

Works to construct an access track at Geneva Bridge continues.

Council is patching potholes on Clarence Way, and will begin patching Bentley Road at the end of the week before heading to Kyogle Road.

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

Lions Road remains closed north of Murphy Standfield’s culvert to the border, however crews have started work to re-open the road. Council will keep everyone informed of the progress.

Meanwhile, Council will close Sextonville Road approximately 200m east of Trentys Lane from 8.30am Wednesday, 10 August to 3pm Friday, 12 August (weather permitting). Council will be replacing a culvert. Due to the nature of the works, the road will have to be closed at the culvert site. Alternative routes are available via Dyraaba Road and Trentys Lane.
