    COMPLETED WORKS
    Crofton Road
    Excitingly, road pavement restoration works on Crofton Road were completed on 6 June. The works began in November 2023 to remediate significant damaged caused during the February 2022 natural disaster. Construction involved resealing 3 kilometres of road, installing guideposts, and replacing two culverts. During these works, the road remained open with stop-go traffic conditions, and we would like to thank the community for your patience during this time.
    Dorroughby Road
    After listening to the concerns of residents, work crews organised for contractors to install a new guardrail on Dorroughby Road to improve road safety. Thank you to residents for your positive feedback following the installation.

    CURRENT WORKS
    Blue Knob Road
    Work is underway on the first of four landslip sites along Blue Knob Road. Contractor CMC is currently focused on the site closest to Nimbin, where they are constructing two soil nail walls. Once this stage is underway, they will proceed to establish the second site for excavation. The restoration of all four landslips in this project is anticipated to span 10 months, subject to weather conditions.

    Eureka Road, Graham Road & Haywood Lane
    The side tracks and earthworks are completed at all three sites. On Eureka Road piling is now completed and installation of a new Inquik bridge is planned for early August. Piling commenced on Haywood Lane 26 June and is also scheduled for Inquik bridge installation early August. Following these works, piling will begin mid-July on Graham Road due to essential energy power outage required to commence these works. Throughout construction, road users will continue to utilise the side tracks to minimise traffic disruption.


    Gravel Roads – Multiple Sites
    Efforts persist in grading over 120 kilometres of 53 unsealed gravel roads, which suffered substantial damage due to declared natural disasters in December 2023 and April 2024. The most severely affected roads receive highest priority to expedite critical route restoration. This ambitious project, one of the largest of its kind, involves Council deploying six distinct work crews, strategically clustered geographically to optimise efficiency and resource allocation. Recently, HXR conducted grading on Gungas Road and expressed gratitude to the supportive residents they have encountered to date.


    Leycester Road
    Ongoing efforts are focused on repaving the entire length of Leycester Road, covering approximately 3.6 kilometres from Kyogle Road to Bice Road. Construction entails a granular overlay of the existing road surface, resealing, and upgrades to stormwater drainage. Anticipated to span approximately six months, from July to late December 2024 subject to weather conditions. the construction will impact traffic. During this period, road users will be impacted and can expect delays. During the works, residents will be impacted while construction is carried out under traffic control stop/go arrangement and a reduced speed limit. At times road users may experience long delays necessary to facilitate the construction of the new pavement.

    Newton Drive
    Construction has commenced on a second minor upslope landslip further up Newton Drive. Crews have taken advantage of favourable weather conditions during the past month proceeding to the final cleanup and rehabilitation phase. The remaining work involves sealing the road at the landslip site and the replacement of a single pipe culvert. We extend our gratitude to the community for their patience during the minor disruptions to traffic flow.

    Rogerson Road
    Benefiting from favourable weather conditions, the culvert works on Rogerson Road have advanced. These efforts entail replacing outdated steel drains with new cement pipes. Over the course of the month, the pipes were lifted and positioned in place, and the blinding was poured for the headwalls.


    Stony Chute Road
    Earthworks are now complete and site rehabilitation is underway. Drainage structures are on track to be completed by the end of the month. On drainage completion, final works include road resealing which will involve stop/go traffic control.

    Three Chain Road Quarry
    Located on 12.9 hectares, the formerly abandoned Three Chain Road Quarry has excitingly reopened. The site now serves as a revenue stream to support the creation of a rehabilitated green space and koala habitat. Managed by the Flood Restoration Roads and Bridges team, the quarry is excepting Excavated Natural Material (ENM). Any material disposed must undergo rigorous testing with documented proof of addressing strict environmental standards.


    Terania Creek Road
    Thrillingly, construction works on Bridge 3 are now complete. Crews have moved onto Bridge 2 where a side track is in place and works are underway for new approach slabs and restraint bracket installation. After, crews will relocate to Bridge 1 to construct a side-track early to mid-July and commence approach works.

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.

    Environmental Rescue at Rogerson Road
    What happens when a handful of bats put a major flood restoration project on hold? When it came time to replace three large steel storm water drainage pipes with reinforced concrete pipes ones on Rogerson Road, McKees Hill, project coordinators discovered at least half a dozen micro bats had made a hole in one pipe, their home.

    Myotis Macropus: One of Australia’s most fascinating species because they’re the only bats in Australia to capture fish for food. They have large feet which they use to trawl for food near the water’s surface. Work crews had to play a waiting game until two juvenile bats were old enough to fly. But then the challenge was - how to catch the youngsters and offer them an alternative roosting venue. Eventually patience and thermal imaging cameras confirmed the two young bats took to the skies for the first time, just after sunset on 1st May.

    That night the hole was sealed, and a timber bat box installed as an alternative roost. Four bats settled into their new home but the remaining two had to be caught and housed in the box. Once the culvert work is complete it’s hoped all the bats, and their box will be relocated into the new concrete pipes.

    COMPLETED WORKS
    Crofton Road
    Road pavement restoration works on Crofton Road are on track to be completed by the end of May. Until then the road will remain open under traffic control to have minimal impact on residents, please allow extra time for delays.


    Gungas Road
    Works commenced at the end of April on Gungas Road to desilt the creek crossing at Black Sheep. This involved the removal of debris to allow the creek to flow across the full width and reduce the chance of overtopping the crossing in the future.


    Nimbin Road
    Wet weather continued to cause delays to the completion of works on Nimbin Road at the site near Shipway Road. By mid-May the road was open to two-way traffic with the final clean up completed by 24 May 2024. During the past month, works were completed for the construction drainage along the retaining wall and placement of road base layers along the full width of the road. The road has now been sealed with asphalt and guardrails installed.

    Oakey Creek Road
    In May, temporary works were completed at a landslip site along Oakey Creek Road that was identified as a safety hazard.


    CURRENT WORKS
    Multiple Road Works
    The works involve grading over 120km on 53 unsealed gravel roads which have been significantly damaged as a result of declared natural disaster events in December 2023 and April 2024. Roads with the most severe damage have been given the highest priority to ensure that critical routes are restored first.

    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!

    Tuntable Creek Road – Road Open (3:30pm, 23 April 2024)

    Tuntable Creek Road has reopened after the shutdown due to rainfall. We apologise to the community for the inconvenience caused and delays in travelling alternative routes.

    As the site has not had its permanent repair designed and constructed, a management plan is in place which requires visual inspections, geotechnical instrument readings, surveying monitoring, rain records and photograph evidence.

    In the event of rainfall exceeding our trigger level or other significant changes the temporary track will be closed again at short notice.
