    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

    Cawongla Road
    Recently work crews made the road wider on Cawongla Road around the landslip area. You can locate the exact region through viewing our IntraMaps and selecting ‘Major Flood Recovery Works’ these works are found at damage No. DM00666.


    Geotechnical Investigations
    During the month our contractors closed Wallace Road and Oakey Creek Road to perform geotechnical investigations. This involved using a drilling rig to understand subsurface conditions. We would like to thank residents for your patience and resilience during this time.


    Koonorigan Road
    Road maintenance works were recently completed for Koonorigan Road with a new seal laid to improve the road condition and impact on residents. Geotechnical investigations were also performed during this period, and we would like to thank the community for their continuing patience.

    CURRENT WORKS

    Carabeen Place
    Carabeen Place is progressing on schedule with asphalt now completed at the site. Work crews are finalising works to prepare for a reopening of the site. Thank you to the residents for your patience during the works period.


    Nimbin Road
    The works are progressing on schedule for Nimbin Road with Site Km1.0 is on track to open before the end of the year. The total extension of the remediation works for the site is 120m with 239 piles now installed with the total length of 3,226 linear meters. Additionally, 150m3 of concrete have been used for the construction of the pile cap with 611 blocks placed on top of the pile cap to allow the reconstruction of the road.


    FUTURE WORKS

    Zouch Road
    Following the February 2022 natural disaster, Zouch Road suffered extensive damage. Funding has now been secured to complete geotechnical investigations using a drilling rig to understand subsurface conditions. The full road closure will no longer be in place as work crews have been able to contract a smaller drilling rig for the works. A smaller rig allows the team to establish a temporary track for resident cars to drive through the work zone to access their properties during the works period. As a result of this change, the works will change to occur from 7am to 5pm between the 6th to 15th of December. The works are located approximately between the intersection with Stoney Chute Road and to the west along Zouch Road approximately 400m. Motorists will be notified of further information via roadside signage and updated through www.livetraffic.com. Emergency services vehicles will be accommodated during these works. Please adhere to all road closed signs and directions from any traffic controllers and expect delays. We apologise for any inconvenience.

    COMPLETED WORKS

    Keerrong Road

    Works were completed during October on Keerrong Road for excavation of slipped material and reconstruction of the road embankment. The works were carried out over 3 weeks and Council would like to thank the community for their support during the road closure.


    Tuntable Creek Road

    During October, new road signs were installed to assist with future road closures for Tuntable Creek Road. The extra signs will allow Council to notify residents of closures before reaching the closed site, helping to reduce detour times.


    CURRENT WORKS

    Crofton Road

    This week, the first 500 metres of the road section will undergo restoration. Due to extensive damage, this section will be converted into a gravel road to facilitate the smooth flow of construction vehicles until the works are completed. Additionally, starting next week, pavement restoration works will commence from the other end of the road, and will be carried out for next two months ensuring improvements to enhance the road's overall condition.


    Carabeen Place

    Funding was secured for works to commence on Carabeen Road in October to repair damages caused during the 2022 natural disaster. The works includes restoring the batter to its original condition with rockfill and ensuring the drainage is adequate for future events.


    Nimbin Road

    Works are continuing for Nimbin Road, with the Site Km1 recently completing the placement of fine concrete blocks and backfill behind the retaining wall. The next steps are to backfill the underside of the road pavement layers and complete placement of the culvert outlet. Once completed, the road pavement construction will start along with earthworks around the retaining wall. Site Km4 recently completed the installation of 180 piles with the remaining piles to be completed at the beginning of November. Concrete pouring for the first section of the pile cap commenced late October with works currently underway for the first section of the 50m long blinding layer.


    FUTURE WORKS

    Traffic Barriers

    Rural roads in the Lismore Local Government Area will have some of the creek crossings with damaged traffic barriers replaced during November. Approximately 15 crossings will be included as part of the Flood Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) funding.

    Terania Creek Road

    Works are schedule to commence at Terania Creek Road on Bridge No. 3 during early November. These works will initially entail construction of a temporary side track next to the bridge so traffic can be detoured. After, works commence on installation of the new concrete bridge approaches. These works are expected to take approximately three to four weeks and will then move only Bridge No. 2, followed by Bridge No. 1. A VMS board will be installed prior to detouring traffic.


    Rogerson Road

    Funding is now approved for culvert works to Rogerson Road. During the Feb 2022 flood event, the Rogerson Road culvert had corrugated pipes that were severely scoured as well as the pipe bedding being eroded. The corrugated pipes will be replaced with precast concrete pipes to meet current engineering standards. Tendering is about to start for the works and members of our team are meeting with residents to discuss the works and notify them of any interruptions for the road.

    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.

We have also asked for priority funding to accelerate these works. When approved, works will apply to multiple sections that have been identified as significantly impacted by the February 2022 natural disaster, based on pre and post disaster assessments.

    Council would like to improve the impact on residents while waiting for funding approval and have scheduled further gravel road maintenance works for next week. We would like to thank the community for their continuing patience.
