    ROADS & BRIDGES FLOOD RESTORATION PROJECT UPDATE

    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.

    COMPLETED WORKS
    Geotechnical Investigations
    During the last 5 months geotechnical investigations have taken place across the entire Lismore shire region. These works have involved using a drilling rig to understand subsurface conditions at the many landslip, bridge and culvert crossing locations. This information is vital in determining the most appropriate restoration design solution for these locations. All landslip, culvert and bridge geotechnical investigations have now been completed. We would like to thank residents for your patience and resilience during this time.


    CURRENT WORKS
    Dorroughby Road
    The Dorroughby Road landslip restoration is well underway with embankment stabilisation completed last month. Wet weather has extended the closure slightly, however, drainage and road pavement works are scheduled to occur during March. See below progress photos, thank you to all the Dorroughby Road residents for your patience during this time.

    Nimbin Road
    Works are progressing on Nimbin Road at the site near Shipway Road. The retaining wall construction is now complete, and the road pavement works commenced end of February. Excitingly, traffic has temporarily moved onto the newly constructed northbound lane in preparation for an expected opening in April.

    Guardrails Project
    During the past month our guardrails project has been underway, replacing or installing new guardrails. This is multisite works to repair traffic barriers at road sections damaged during the 2022 natural disaster. Generally, the sites are at road sections over creek crossings. Each work site will require traffic control and the repair will generally be completed within 2 days. Recently, guardrails were completed on two sites at Nimbin Road, Rock Valley Road, Cawongla Road, Corndale Road and two sites at Boatharbour Road. Other road closures will be updated as scheduled work on Live Traffic.
