After peaking yesterday afternoon and receding, flood waters are on their way back up again in Kyogle and are expected to peak this evening. For road closures due to water inundation follow this link to the myroadinfo website.
Council has had to close the following road today due to flood damage:
- The Clarence Way at Yabbra Scrub
Roads that were closed yesterday that remain closed are:
- Boundary Creek Road at the first causeway
- Boorabee Creek Road at the first causeway
- Lions Road from Murphy Standfield’s culvert due to a landslip that has worsened
- Barker Bridge on Williams Road
- Gradys Creek Road at the last causeway
- Bolziccos Road
- Davis Road
- Walsh Road at the bridge
- Geneva Street (remains closed)
- Capeen Creek Road (remains closed)
- Lillian Rock Road (remains closed)
Due to continuing adverse weather conditions, Council has only been able to undertake minimal road works. Crews will be back out on the roads undertaking repairs as soon as the water recedes.
Weather permitting, Council hopes to re-start work tomorrow to restore the landslip on the Kyogle Road at Cawongla Range. If the work goes ahead, the road will be closed from 8am to 4pm. Council will advise the community via Facebook as early as possible if the road closure is going ahead.
The situation on the Bruxner Highway and Summerland remains unchanged.
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.
Summerland Way is restricted to one lane of traffic at Burnetts. The single lane closure will be in place for some time.
