    COMPLETED WORKS

    ‘Thirst for Legacy’ – CMC Community Spirit in Nimbin
    In a heart warming display of community spirit, the CMC team involved in the Nimbin Road project recently rallied together to support the Nimbin Bowling Club. Their initiative involved recycling cans and bottles collected from their work site, with the proceeds earmarked for a noble cause: funding the installation of a BBQ area at the club. CMC head office joined in on the idea, matching the money the team raised. The Nimbin Bowlo is a non-for-profit establishment, mostly managed by dedicated volunteers, so they were very appreciative of the kind gesture. Last month the dedicated team volunteered to lay down the concrete slab. Soon other organisations came to the party with Holcim Concrete Lismore providing a discount on the concrete to fit into the budget and Nimbin Hardware donating two sheets of mesh. Additionally, several locals donated their time along with the CMC staff to place and finish the slab. CMC donated labour and supervision, as you can see from the photos many locals also provided supervision of their own. This act of gratitude was CMC’s way of expressing appreciation to the local community for their unwavering support during the team’s time in our region. Their commitment to both the project and the community exemplifies the positive impact that collaborative efforts can have. LCC would like to thank the project team for their generosity and community-minded approach!

    COMPLETED WORKS

    Bungabbee Road

    Recently the Bungabbee Road bridge approaches works were completed to repair damages from the 2022 natural disaster. The works involved re-construction of the damaged approaches and re-instatement of guard rails, drainage, and scour protection around abutments.


    Dudgeon Road Bridge

    Works were scheduled and completed last month to repair the flood damaged Bungabbee Road bridge approaches. The works involved re-construction of the damaged approaches and re-instatement of guard rails, drainage, and scour protection around abutments.


    Major Flood Recovery Works Map

    Our interactive map recently underwent upgrades to improve user experience and include other flood recovery departments. Water and wastewater along with Flood Restoration Building projects have now been implemented into the map and in the coming month the flood restoration buildings will all be included. The map assists the community with finding efficient, up-to-date information about restoration works.


    CURRENT WORKS

    Nimbin Road

    Works are continuing for the Nimbin Road landslips. Site Km1, located 1 Km from Nimbin has all the concrete works and piling complete with the installation of block wall in progress. This site is on schedule for the road to be fully open before Christmas. Site Km4, located 4 Km’s from Nimbin is currently undergoing construction of gabion walls, these are used for scour protection, which prevents soil from being washed away and helps strengthen the road. The site also has piling in progress with approximately 30% completed.


    Keerrong Road

    Works have commenced on Keerrong Road for excavation of slipped material and reconstruction of the road embankment. The works are scheduled for approximately 3 weeks, subject to weather, contractor, and material availability. A full road closure will be required around the works zone throughout the works period. A detour is available via Pinchin Road, motorists will be notified ahead of the closure via roadside signage, updated through www.livetraffic.com. Residents will have access to their properties via Pinchin Road and The Channon Road but will be unable to drive through the landslip work zone. Please adhere to all road closed signs and directions from any traffic controllers.


    Geotechnical Investigations

    The Lismore City Council (LCC), Flood Recovery – Roads and Bridges team recently secured interim funding for additional geotechnical investigations and survey to commence on several flood affected roads. Initial investigations took place in 2022 to inform the designers about the geological conditions and failure mechanism. This information was used to apply for funding to repair. Additional investigations are now required to inform the final design.

    Geotechnical drilling is a type of drilling that is performed as part of the construction process to assist with better understanding a site. Investigations involve collecting rock and soil samples to obtain data regarding surface and subsurface examination. These samples provide valuable insights into the physical properties of the site, enabling engineers to design and construct remediation works to deliver roads that are safer and more durable.

    Roads approved for investigations include Bice Road, Bishops Creek Road, Black Road, Blue Knob Road, Boyle Road, Cawongla Road, Cosy Camp Road, Cross Road, Gungas Road, Johnston Road, Koonorigan Road, Lillian Rock, Martin Road, Mountain Top Road, Oakey Creek Road, Orion Street, Rock Valley Road, Skyline Road, Stanger Road, Stony Chute Road, Terania Creek Road, The Channon Road, Tuntable Creek Road, Upper Tuntable Falls Road, Wallace Road, Whian Whian Road, Yeager Road and Zouch Road.


    Cawongla Road

    Significant changes to the traffic control measures at the Cawongla Road Landslide site, near Martin Road, were recently implemented. It was identified that the site was deemed unsafe due to technical issues with the traffic lights, including repeated battery charge depletion, and concerns about safety. Therefore, the traffic lights previously regulating traffic flow have been replaced with a “Give Way” sign and a “Stop” sign. This decision was prompted by multiple incidents of road users running the red lights, posing a serious safety hazard. The new signage system aims to simplify traffic management while mitigating potential hazards. All signage has been installed as per the amended traffic guidance scheme, and a comprehensive risk assessment was conducted before implementing these changes to ensure the safety of all individuals travelling through the site.

    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.
