Flood Restoration - Roads & Bridges Update (Nov 2023)


Please note, several road and bridge projects progressing concurrently, below are updates for some projects progressing this month. Please check the 'Projects By Name' and select the road name for latest updates. Additionally, if there is a road you would like specific flood restoration updates on, please register your contact details via our notification list form.


Cawongla Road
Recently work crews made the road wider on Cawongla Road around the landslip area. You can locate the exact region through viewing our IntraMaps and selecting ‘Major Flood Recovery Works’ these works are found at damage No. DM00666.

Geotechnical Investigations
During the month our contractors closed Wallace Road and Oakey Creek Road to perform geotechnical investigations. This involved using a drilling rig to understand subsurface conditions. We would like to thank residents for your patience and resilience during this time.

Koonorigan Road
Road maintenance works were recently completed for Koonorigan Road with a new seal laid to improve the road condition and impact on residents. Geotechnical investigations were also performed during this period, and we would like to thank the community for their continuing patience.


Carabeen Place
Carabeen Place is progressing on schedule with asphalt now completed at the site. Work crews are finalising works to prepare for a reopening of the site. Thank you to the residents for your patience during the works period.

Nimbin Road
The works are progressing on schedule for Nimbin Road with Site Km1.0 is on track to open before the end of the year. The total extension of the remediation works for the site is 120m with 239 piles now installed with the total length of 3,226 linear meters. Additionally, 150m3 of concrete have been used for the construction of the pile cap with 611 blocks placed on top of the pile cap to allow the reconstruction of the road.


Zouch Road
Following the February 2022 natural disaster, Zouch Road suffered extensive damage. Funding has now been secured to complete geotechnical investigations using a drilling rig to understand subsurface conditions. The full road closure will no longer be in place as work crews have been able to contract a smaller drilling rig for the works. A smaller rig allows the team to establish a temporary track for resident cars to drive through the work zone to access their properties during the works period. As a result of this change, the works will change to occur from 7am to 5pm between the 6th to 15th of December. The works are located approximately between the intersection with Stoney Chute Road and to the west along Zouch Road approximately 400m. Motorists will be notified of further information via roadside signage and updated through www.livetraffic.com. Emergency services vehicles will be accommodated during these works. Please adhere to all road closed signs and directions from any traffic controllers and expect delays. We apologise for any inconvenience. Further information can be sourced on the original works post:
