    Orion Street

    Road closure Monday 25th – 29th July from Keen Street roundabout to Molesworth Street. Local Access Only from Dawson Street. Due to the slumping on Orion Street, geotechnical drilling will be undertaken to determine the depth of the slip plane and options for remediation. (Updated and postponed due to illness in the specialist contracting team)

    Koonorigan Road

    Works are commencing on making a temporary side-track over the slip at Koonorigan Road, suitable for local access. Funding approval has been received to heavy patch the seal on The Channon side of the slip. This work is currently being scheduled.

    Regional Roads - Damaged Sealed Roads

    Approval has been received for the proposed scope of work to heavy patch six sections of Nimbin Road. Heavy patching consists of cutting off high shoulders, box out soft spots, overlay gravel where required, stabilise (nominal 1.5% slag/lime), compact, trim and seal. The procurement of a specialist stabilising subcontractor is underway. Scope has also been approved for Blue Knob Road, Dunoon Road, Kyogle Road and Wyrallah Road (excluding the Wyrallah Village). Wyrallah Village will be the subject to a reconstruction as it is not suitable for heavy patching.

    Geotechnical works will take place on the week of the 1st of August. This road, currently accessible to locals, will be fully closed during the works.

    Repentance Creek Road

    No further road closures. Due to delays in getting asphalt contractors, a sacrificial seal has been placed on the road surface for the safety of motorists. Works are expected to be fully completed by the end of July. Please drive with care.

    The Channon Road

    Geotechnical investigations have been completed for the slip behind the guardrail. Works will commence once the design of proposed embankment reconstruction is finalised. The scope of works required to heavy patch flood damaged sections of the road has now been approved, with works to commence in the coming weeks.

    The Channon Road (Robertson Bridge)

    Bridge construction works and heavy patching of sealed road is underway. Landslip repair, drainage reconstruction and gravel road resheeting is planned to commence in August.

    Tuntable Creek Road

    Investigation works north of Rose Road are underway to establish the feasibility of a side-track to facilitate local access to Nimbin. Geotechnical investigations are complete for all slips. Undergoing instrument monitoring to determine the remediation of the site.

    These works are subject to change to due weather conditions, availability of contractors and funding. Updates will be posted on this article.

    Shall you wish to be kept up to date directly, you can register your details via the Your Say ‘Submissions’ tab HERE. Alternately, please contact Lismore City Council via email or call (02) 6625 0500 to register your details. Please reference ‘Flood Recovery Heavy Patching Program’.

    How will the works affect traffic?

    Roads will be open to residential access only during the time of works. Traffic controls will be in place, which will cause minor delays and disruptions. Please note roadside signage, updates on myroadinfo and updates in the online Your Say article for communication about temporary disruptions to your property access during this period.

    What do the works involve?

    These roads need to be fixed to improve the structural integrity and driving conditions for road users. Works include cleaning drains and culverts, cutting off high road shoulders, digging out and replacing soft spots with rock. The gravel overlay is placed where required, before stabilising with the addition of slag lime. This is then compacted, trimmed, and sealed. Followed by line marking edge line.

    The road surface may receive a final wearing seal several months after the initial bitumen seal has cured.

    This pavement overlay may potentially change road levels between 0mm to +150mm and resurfacing of the existing road width due to additional layers of new road base material.

    All driveways that intersect the road will match any changes to the road profile. If there are any changes, you will be contacted should your driveway/access need modification. We will also do maintenance to roadside drainage as needed.

    What happens now?

    If you wish to make comment on the works, we ask that you do this by 4pm Monday, 15th August 2022 referring to ‘Flood Recovery Heavy Patching Program’. Feedback can be received via any of the following:
