Mackie Road

The Mackie Road culvert to bridge replacement at Johnston Creek works are currently underway and on schedule. Works began on March 10th with successful delivery of bridge components to the site. Currently, pavement works are occurring on the bridge approaches as pictured below. The project works are planned for completion in June 2023, subject to fine weather. Due to the nature of the works a full 24-hour hard road closure will continue around the site location until mid-June 2023.

Industry Briefing

Local businesses and experienced organisations are invited to attend an industry briefing and networking session hosted by Lismore City Council as part of the selection process to appoint a Managing Contractor to deliver flood-restoration works on our roads and bridges.

The February 2022 natural disaster caused significant damage across Lismore’s extensive road network, with an initial estimated cost of between $150 million and $200 million.

Lismore City Council’s Roads and Bridges Project Director, Alan Madden, said the Industry Briefing on Monday, 15 May was a milestone in Lismore’s recovery.

“Over the last 14 months, Council has undertaken extensive emergency road works to ensure communities are not isolated. We are now at the next crucial stage of the rebuild,” he said.

“The extent of the damage, and the highly specialist expertise needed in second stage of the rebuild, is nothing short of massive and is beyond the capacity of Council, particularly as we also need to complete our “business as usual’ works.

“The briefing is also an opportunity for our local suppliers to form relationships with some of the industry’s most experienced companies. The size and scope of the project means the successful managing contractor will need the assistance of many local contractors,” Alan said.

“Thankfully, it’s not every day a project of this size and complexity comes along, so I encourage all relevant businesses to attend and find out how they can get involved.”

The briefing will explain how the selection process works for the Roads and Bridges Recovery Program. While attendance is not mandatory to submit a tender, it is encouraged as important information will be shared about the project before the tender is advertised.

Following the briefing, attendees will enjoy light refreshments and networking opportunities. This is an excellent opportunity for local suppliers to connect with potential clients and participate in a project that could have significant benefits for their business.

The event will take place on Monday, 15 May, at 10am at Southern Cross University, Lismore.

Registration is required to attend the event and can be completed through Eventbrite at the following link: https://LCCindustrybriefing.eventbrite.com.au
