    Mackie Road

    Following the AGRN943 2020 natural disaster the Mackie Road causeway at Johnston Creek suffered extensive damage. Funding was awarded to replace the damaged structure with a bridge to reduce impediments to fish passage. The Mackie Road culvert to bridge replacement at Johnston Creek works are now completed with the road opening at the end of May 2023. Work at site began in March and during May the bridge concrete pours, guardrail installation and bridge approaches were completed, with the final stage of works involving bitumen sealing and batter protection. Council would like to thank residents and road users for their patience during the road closure.


    CURRENT WORKS

    Tuntable Creek Road

    Recently, council staff were forced to close Tuntable Creek Road for two days 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. Please contact floodrecoveryroadsbridges@lismore.nsw.gov.au with the subject ‘Tuntable Creek Road notification list’ to register your contact details to receive updates.


    Nimbin Road

    Council commenced roadworks on two landslip sites on Nimbin Road during May. The first major construction works involve tree felling for both sites, with site one having larger trees which will land on the road. The works are expected to occur over 9 months from mid-May 2023 subject to weather, contractor, and material availability. This will involve piling and retaining wall construction works to allow repair of the landslips, reconstruction of pavement, reinstatement of road and guardrail barriers along with installing signs, guideposts, and line marking. Traffic control lights remain in place and existing single lane traffic control will remain in place during the works period. Road users are advised to follow VMS boards and signage, with delays expected as these works commence.


    Town Road

    Funding was awarded by the NSW Government through its Fixing Country Bridges program to replace the damaged structure at Town Road, Terania Creek with a new steel superstructure bridge. The innovative steel structure has been constructed in France and will be launched into place in one piece. Unique for the area, this type of structure will be the first in the region. Works have recommenced at the site in April 2023, where a temporary track has now been constructed in preparation for bridges piling. A planned completion date is scheduled for September 2023, subject to weather, contractor, and material availability.


    Wyrallah Road & Wyrallah Ferry Road

    Local contractors and prominent construction companies gathered at Southern Cross University on Monday for an industry briefing hosted by Lismore City Council. The purpose of the briefing was to provide key insights into the upcoming flood restoration works following the February 2022 natural disaster.

    The briefing session provided a comprehensive overview of the procurement strategy for the upcoming works. This included the selection process for appointing a Managing Contractor.

    Brendan Logan, Council’s Chief Operating Officer, said the industry briefing helped to foster collaboration and engagement between local businesses and the potential managing contractor.

    “The briefing presented an opportunity for local businesses to establish new connections. It allowed them to actively participate in a project that could have significant benefits for their business,” he said.

    During the briefing, the scope of works was outlined and attendees received updates on the more than 2000 specific damage sites across 400+ road and bridge assets.

    At the conclusion of the briefing, a networking event was held to provide local businesses an opportunity to form relationships with some of the industry’s most experienced companies.

    The Flood Recovery team has already completed $13 million of emergency works and $17 million of Immediate Restoration Works. The works to date were completed using both internal resources and local contractors.

    Funding for the project will be provided by the Commonwealth through the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

    The managing contractor scope is expected to go to market in August 2023, followed by another briefing session, site visit and workshops. Evaluation and award of the contract are expected to take place in December.

    For further information on the briefing or the upcoming flood restoration works, please contact Council on 6625 0500 or email floodrecoveryroadsbridges@lismore.nsw.gov.au

    Lismore City Council has awarded the tender for the remediation of landslips on Nimbin Road to Civil Mining and Construction Pty Ltd. This significant milestone marks another step towards enabling the area to remain a thriving tourist destination.

    Two landslip sites on Nimbin Road were identified as significantly impacted by the February 2022 natural disaster through pre and post disaster assessments.

    Council has prioritised this project, working in collaboration with state authorities. The roadworks will not only provide a safe and well-designed route for locals and tourists, but will also re-establish access to other villages and cultural attractions in the region.

    Council’s Chief Operating Officer Brendan Logan said awarding this tender is a massive win for the Nimbin community.

    "The community has displayed remarkable resilience throughout the past year. Through this project, the road can be restored and the town can continue to thrive as a tourist hotspot," he said.

    Nimbin Village, renowned worldwide for its vibrant atmosphere, attracts thousands of tourists to the region. Awarding this tender will enable the landslip remediation project to commence, restoring dual lane access to the town for residents, businesses and tourists.

    The anticipated timeline for the works is approximately nine months, subject to weather conditions, specialist contractors, and material availability. During this period, traffic control lights and existing single lane traffic control measures will remain in place.

    The works will involve piling and retaining wall construction, pavement reconstruction, road reinstatement, installation of guardrail barriers, signage, guideposts and line marking. Road users are advised to follow signage and anticipate delays during the works.

    This project is jointly funded by the Australian and NSW Government’s under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) with the funding administered by Transport for NSW.
