    Single lane traffic control will be in place as Council completes stabilisation pavement overlay works to Nightcap Range Road and Middleton Way. The works will apply to three sections across the length of Nightcap Range Road and one section of Middle Way, to be completed over four weeks. Works are expected to start early December 2022 subject to weather, contractor, and material availability.

    Funding has now been secured through Transport for NSW. This funding is allocated to repair damage sustained during the February 2022 natural disaster only. The following four sections have been identified based on pre and post February 2022 assessments. Additional works will continue to be assessed and reviewed.

    What do the roadworks involve?

    • Road surface: Improve the surface of the road in places. Road to be raised approximately 150mm.
    • Signs and line marking: Line marking and guideposts.
    • Vegetation management: Manage roadside vegetation to remove obstacles, improve sight distances, and clearances for signage.
    • Drainage maintenance: Re-excavate open drains and remove flood sediment as required. Minor drainage works will be completed prior to pavement works commencing.
    • Driveway adjustment: Adjust access to driveways affected by the wider road footprint as required.

    Road users are advised to follow signage and expect delays as these works are completed.

    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:
