Lismore City Council is continuing works to repair roads following significant flood damage. Urgent work is required to repair multiple sections of Keerrong Road, which includes a culvert collapse, areas of severe pavement damage and a large landslide.


The collapsed culvert structure, located north of the intersection with Dudgeon Road will be replaced with a new concrete bridge.



Works will be undertaken to repair the sealed pavement section approximately 1-3km from Nimbin Road, improving access for road users. These works are temporary as Council is currently seeking funding for the repair and full restoration cannot be completed with current weather conditions.


Investigations are underway into the large landslide located near The Channon Road end to determine full restoration treatments.

What do the works involve?

  • Re-shape the sealed pavement section to temporarily restore pavement formation
  • Installing a concrete InQuik bridge structure, 7.2m wide by 16.1m long at the culvert site
  • Geotechnical investigation and design for the large landslide near The Channon Road

When will the works start?

Bridge works and temporary road works are expected to be finalised by August 31, 2022.

These works may be subject to delays due to weather events. Updates will be posted on the online article listed below. A date for the permanent restoration of the sealed pavement sections and the large landslide will be advised once funding had been confirmed.


What are the traffic adjustments?

Road users are advised to be aware of works being completed, and to slow down in work zones. Further traffic information will be listed on northernrivers.myroadinfo.com. Please allow additional travel time.

    Bridge construction works are now well underway. Landing bridge beams were installed yesterday at Keerrong Bridge.

    Due to the February 28 disaster and March flooding events, the collapsed culvert structure located north of the intersection with Dudgeon Road is being replaced with a new 7.2m wide by 16.1m long InQuik bridge.

    Works on the bridge are expected to be finalised by the end of August 2022, pending weather conditions.

    Landslip repair, drainage reconstruction and gravel road resheeting is planned to commence in August.

    Keerrong Road is also scheduled to undergo pavement repairs on some sections of severely damaged areas from Wednesday July 13th. Initially the works will start with drainage remediation to allow water to drain from the pavement. Following these works there will be a pavement stabilisation crew mobilising to site to stabilise the existing pavement. As well as adding an additional 150mm of new road base material to improve the pavements strength.

    This work is a large roads maintenance activity and will take approximately 4 weeks to complete (weather permitting).

    A single lane traffic closure will allow traffic to travel through the worksite. Signage will be in place to notify road users, and updates available on northernrivers.myroadinfo

    We thank the community for their patience as we complete these works.
