    Tuntable Creek Road temporary access works

    Geotechnical drilling is continuing to refine the design to provide temporary road access.

    The road is completed closed to pedestrians from Monday, 28 November 2022 to allow emergency soil nailing works to take place.

    Temporary stabilisation of landslip on Stony Chute Road

    Currently one lane of traffic is open between Whitney and Stanger Roads. During investigation works for the permanent design it was noted that the open lane was at risk of failure due to scour and erosion. A temporary solution using rock to buttress the open face was developed and works were completed last week. Further works are ongoing to repair damaged temporary pavement along Stony Chute Road.
