Dunoon Road Closure - Emergency Works

***Updates for this project, plus Q+A are posted on the main article HERE

Due to significant flood damage, Lismore City Council will close both sides of Dunoon Road between Dorroughby Road and Repentance Creek Road starting on Monday, 4 April, 2022.

The road is expected to be closed in a phased approach to accommodate the Easter long weekend where it will open up again with traffic lights for both directions. After Easter from Tuesday, 19 April the section of Dunoon Road will close again until 26 April, 2022.

What do the works involve?

  • Excavation of existing road surface down to access base of embankment.
  • Reconstruct embankment using rock and select fill.
  • Reconstruct pavement and seal.
  • Damage to the sealed pavement on the approaches will be repaired also.

When will the works start and what are the hours of work?

Works will start in the week commencing 4 April 2022. We expect the project will take about 6 weeks to complete, subject to weather conditions.

Work hours:

  • 4th to 14th April, 2022 24-hour closure (working hours 6:30am to 6:00 pm Monday to Saturday)
  • 15th to 25th April, 2022 Single Lane track open under automated traffic lights
  • 26th April to 22nd May, 2022 24-hour closure (working hours 6:30am to 6:00 pm Monday to Saturday)
  • No work Sundays or public holidays.

If there is a requirement to change these hours, you will be notified.

What are the traffic adjustments?

During the road closure period, traffic will be detoured via Repentance Creek Road (turns into Rosebank Road) and Dorroughby Road.

Electronic billboards will be displaying alerts for detours. Further details will be available on MyRoadInfo website.

What do I need to do?

Please obey the temporary traffic conditions in place and allow additional time for travel.

We apologise in advance for disruptions you may experience whilst we complete these works. We would appreciate your cooperation with all temporary traffic control and workplace protection measures onsite to help keep everyone safe.

Who should I contact for further information?
