You will find all the latest repair works for roads and bridges. All current works that have updates are categorised by project name. If viewing via a smartphone, you can find the 'Projects by Name' at the bottom of this page. If on a desktop, 'Projects by Name' are to the right.


Why was this page designed?

Since the February 2022 natural disaster, we have had an extended period of wet weather, which has significantly affected our road network. It rained three out of four days between November 2021 and April 2022.

This resulted in 90% of our 1200km road network suffering extensive damage, with an estimated $200 million to rebuild and repair.

There has also been much damage to many bridges, causeways, reinforced concrete pipes, reinforced concrete box culverts and footpaths across our road network. Some key access roads have been reduced to single lanes due to landslips.

Immediately after flood waters receded, our road crews conducted emergency repairs on more than 80 roads to allow access for residents. Several construction crews worked extended hours to ensure damaged roads were reopened/made safe as soon as possible.

As the repairs progress, we will provide more detailed updates on the specific flood-related damage to our road network and information on how you can report damaged roads to Council.

Assessments are underway at the larger and more complex damaged sites. There are specific engineering tasks in some areas which are necessary and will take time. Some sites may see temporary measures such as side-track access, temporary pothole repair and gravel roads before permanent construction works at these locations commence.

Planning will continue to ensure works are undertaken as quickly as possible. Priorities are based on public safety with consideration of further damage, maintaining access and links between communities, hierarchy of roads and efficiency of results.


What process does Council have to go through when we have a 'disaster event'?

When we experience a natural disaster such as a flood event, which causes significant damage to our infrastructure, there are a number of steps that Council has to go through, like an insurance claim process.

Council identifies, assesses and then makes a claim for the damage from the appropriate funding body. As we do not have the money to pay for these kind of extraordinary events from our day to day budgets. There are strict rules regarding documentation.

There are multiple steps in this process including design investigation, final design, approval, scheduling of work crews and/or engagement of contractors so there can be a long lag time from the actual event to the rectification works being started and completed.

The table below shows further details and indicative timings for the steps in this process: (All timings are subject to weather, contractor and material availability)

  • Wyrallah Road - Pavement Works (Jan 2023)

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Following the 2022 natural disaster, Wyrallah Road suffered extensive damage. Works will begin from the end of January for pavement rehabilitation, please refer to the map provided for an overview of the location.


    All works will be completed under single lane traffic control, this will be implemented from January 30th for 4 months with a planned completion in late May 2023, subject to fine weather, between the hours of 7am and 5pm. This planned single lane road closure will allow Council to preform reconstruction work on Wyrallah Road preforming numerus tasks mentioned within this letter throughout the 500m stretch of the road.


    Funding has been secured through Transport for NSW. This funding is allocated to repair damage sustained during the February 2022 natural disaster only. Additional works required and subsequent funding for Wyrallah Road are being reviewed.


    We apologise in advance for access disruptions you may experience during these construction activities, and we thank you in anticipation of your cooperation and patience during these essential works.

    Map outlining approximate location of the Wyrallah Road single lane closure

    What are the works?

    The works will reconstruct and rehabilitate approximately 500m of Wyrallah Road. These works include removing approximately 400mm of shoulder material and replacing this section with roadbase through the first 100m of the project from Lismore. Then, approximately 100mm of the existing surface will be overlaid and stabilised. Throughout the remaining 250m length of the road, crews will remove unsuitable material to an approximate depth of 600mm below existing heights and replace it with 500mm of rock, and 350mm of roadbase. This will result in an increased road height of approximately 250mm from the existing height to the finish surface height. Throughout this construction process drainage works, kerb installation and subsoil installation will also be completed.


    When are the works taking place?

    Works are scheduled to start from January 30th and are expected to take about four months to complete, subject to fine weather conditions. Daily work hours will mostly be between 7am and 5pm weekdays, although there may be some weekend work.


    What will be the traffic controls/detours?

    Due to the intensive nature of roadworks and associated traffic controls, there will unfortunately be some traffic disruptions. These traffic controls will include single land road closure. This will ensure the roadworks are completed in a timely manner, with safety as a predominant factor, by eliminating traffic through a single lane of this road throughout the construction footprint. Throughout the construction period there may be periods where 24/7 portable traffic lights will be needed to keep a travel lane closed overnight.

    Local access to residences will be maintained by actively managing residents’ needs within the construction footprint to allow access to homes, however, please be aware of delays. Electronic billboard signage will notify motorists of detours via Lismore and Tregeagle Road. Updates will also be available via Live Traffic NSW and Your Say (page details below). Road users are advised to seek alternate routes, as single lane closures are likely to cause heavy traffic delays.

    Please commute through the job sites at low speed, obey traffic control instructions and drive carefully.

  • Tuntable Creek Road - Flood Recovery (Jan 2023)

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Progress Update - January 2023

    Tuntable Creek Road experienced significant damage during the February 2022 natural disaster. 11 notable landslips have been logged with a major landslip closing the road north of intersection with Rose Road. Prior to Christmas, works commenced on a temporary solution to open the road under traffic-controlled conditions. The temporary solution is subject to accelerated design development with geotechnical investigations occurring at the same time as the construction works.


    To date the following works have been completed:

    • Clearing of site for detailed geological mapping
    • Drilling under geotechnical engineering supervision to determine failure mechanism and soil profile
    • Installation of piezometers and inclinometers to monitor movement and ground water levels
    • Construction of working platform below slip
    • Completion of soil nailing and shotcrete below slip to retain the remaining road reserve


    The works crew will remobilise to the site on Monday the 9th of January. The next stages of the construction consist of:

    • Excavate into the slope above the road
    • Install 49 soil nails and 100m2 shotcrete
    • Reconstruct pavement through the slip zone
    • Install light traffic control and open one lane


    Due to the volatile nature of the slip, care is being taken when undertaking these works ensuring safety for the construction team. The work method is under review and modified where required as the works progress based on data from testing and on-site observations. Innovative products are being trialled to reduce grout loss and staged excavations planned to reduce risk from adverse weather.


    Currently a complete closure of Tuntable Creek Road, north of Rose Road to Beardow Road will remain in place. Including no access for pedestrians, motorbikes, scooters, and bikes. LCC and its contractors would like to thank the public for their patience with these works and also thank local property owners for their assistance.


    The works are expected to be complete in February and further updates will be provided as the works commence on the upper slope.
