Roads update – 7 June

Council has been able to locate the optic fibre cable at the Lynches Creek Road viaduct, which will allow our work crews to make more effective repairs to the very large potholes under the viaduct. The work is expected to be completed tomorrow.

Work crews will head to Connells Road and Ellems Road on Thursday and Friday to repair  a number of “boggy” spots, which are making access difficult for all but four-wheel drive vehicles. Council expects the work to be completed in the two days.

Council’s pothole patching crews are working on Clarence Way, Afterlee Road and Ettrick Road this week.

Work is continuing on the landslip on Forest Road. It is likely to take a number of weeks to complete. Until then, Forest Road remains closed to all traffic. Access is being maintained via Simes Road and Gradys Creek Road.

Drainage repairs are continuing on Boorabee Creek Road and Theresa Creek Road. Theresa Creek Road past Dugans Road turnoff will be closed from 8am to 4pm while the works to complete the repairs, which includes flood damage works on the hill. Council is happy to work with residents to minimise any disruptions.
