Roads Update – 7 September

There has been quite a bit of action on Tunglebung Creek Road this week. Council has completed the side-track at Seccombs Bridge and started piling at Tryneys Bridge. Once the piling has been completed there, the team will move to Armstrongs Bridge. The three bridges are expected to take several months to complete.

Piling continues at bridge sites on Duck Creek Road and Capeen Creek Road, while preparation works have started on Mills Bridge on Green Pigeon Road.

Ferndale Road bridge-to-pipe is now open to traffic and the works team will move to Dyraaba Road to repair the failed culvert that has closed the road 2.5km from the Bruxner Highway. Work to replace flood damaged pipes on Boundary Creek Road has been completed and the crew is now working on a culvert at the intersection of Afterlee and Brays roads.

Flood damage repairs to drainage and minor landslips on Oxbow, Homeleigh, Lindsay Creek, Needham, Brindle Creek, Simes, Sextonville, Iron Pot Creek, Morrows, and Kyogle roads are in progress.  Similar works are planned in the near future for Robb, Sargents, Williams, Hills, Connells, Jasper Iverson, Glen Arvin, Hillyards, Lynches Creek, Gradys Creek, Ghinni Ghi, and Nolans roads.

Flood damage grading crews are at Lofts Pinnacle, Collins Creek, Valley, Dyraaba and Boomi Creek roads. Eggins, Trenty, Old Dyraaba Brumby Plains, Main Creek and Glen roads are earmarked for grading next.

Council is also building an access track to undertake investigations at Lillian Rock Road landslip. In the upcoming week drilling rigs will be at several locations in the Gradys Creek area as investigations into repairing landslips on the road continue.

Road construction works are continuing on Clarence Way at Sandilands, the Bruxner Highway at Mallanganee Range and Dyraaba Road.

Council continues to patch potholes on Kyogle Road, Clarence Way, and Ettrick Road.
