    Tuntable Creek Road experienced significant damage during the February 2022 natural disaster with 11 notable landslips recorded and a major landslip closing the road north of intersection with Rose Road. A temporary solution was designed to open the road and establish connectivity between Nimbin and The Channon while the permanent solution is designed. The temporary construction consists of stabilising the embankment below the road and excavating into the slope above the road to make a single trafficable lane. The stabilisation used up to 160 8m long soil nails and over 400m2 of sprayed concrete. Additionally, a temporary pavement was constructed through the slip zone and installing light traffic control.


    Due to the volatile nature of the landslip and risks of further damages occurring a detailed risk assessment was undertaken to control access until a permanent solution is implemented. The risk assessment requires weekly visual monitoring, survey monitoring of fixed control points and monthly inspections by a geotechnical engineer. Restrictions will be placed on the temporary access road during large rain events to mitigate risks to public. Should the road be closed due to adverse weather, VMS boards placed at The Channon and Nimbin will identify the road closure. Facebook updates will also communicate the closure to the wider community. Please report hazards or changes to Lismore City Council using reference LCC92.

Due to the nature of the works a full 24-hour hard road closure is required during the March – June 2023 works period around the location detailed on the map below.

    Please review the road closure locations to determine whether accessing from Rosebank Road, Ridgewood Road or James Gibson Road is most appropriate for your property. Due to the nature of the works, access through the works site is not possible.

    Funding has been secured through Australian Government's Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA). This funding is allocated to repair damage sustained during the December 2020 natural disaster only. Additional works required and subsequent funding for Mackie Road are being reviewed.


    Council has consulted with Rosebank RFS and a plan is in place for service vehicles due to location of the station. Council will also advise other emergency services. However, in the scenario emergency services are required, please note the road closures on your call to assist.

    Rubbish waste collection will only be impacted around the bridge site. Residents that are affected will be contacted personally to arrange waste collection during the road closure period.

    What are the works?

    During the 2020 flooding events, a concrete causeway on Mackie Road, was significantly damaged. The road is a busy local sealed road connecting Rosebank and Clunes. Under the DRFA guidelines, damaged assets may be replaced to current engineering standards.

    The new bridge will be a single span concrete structure of suitable width to provide a minimum 7.2m trafficable deck. The new structure will be constructed on the same alignment as the current causeway structure.

    When are the works taking place?

    Works are scheduled to start from March 2023 and are expected to take approximately three months to complete, subject to fine weather conditions and resource availability. Daily work hours will mostly be between 7am and 5pm weekdays, although there may be some weekend work.

    What will be the traffic controls/detours?

    Due to the intensive nature of roadworks and associated traffic controls, there will unfortunately be some traffic disruptions. These traffic controls include a full 24-hour road closure. This will ensure the roadworks are completed in a timely manner, with safety as a predominant factor.

    Local access to residences will be maintained by actively managing residents’ needs within the construction footprint to allow access to homes, however, please be aware of delays. Updates will also be available via Live Traffic NSW and Your Say (page details below). Road users are advised to follow signage, seek alternate routes and expect delays as these works are completed.

    Following the 2022 natural disaster, Wyrallah Road suffered extensive damage. Works will begin from the end of January for pavement rehabilitation, please refer to the map provided for an overview of the location.


    All works will be completed under single lane traffic control, this will be implemented from January 30th 2023 for 4 months with a planned completion in late May 2023, subject to fine weather, between the hours of 7am and 5pm. This planned single lane road closure will allow Council to preform reconstruction work on Wyrallah Road preforming numerus tasks mentioned within this letter throughout the 500m stretch of the road.


    Funding has been secured through Transport for NSW. This funding is allocated to repair damage sustained during the February 2022 natural disaster only. Additional works required and subsequent funding for Wyrallah Road are being reviewed.


    We apologise in advance for access disruptions you may experience during these construction activities, and we thank you in anticipation of your cooperation and patience during these essential works.

    Map outlining approximate location of the Wyrallah Road single lane closure

    What are the works?


    The works will reconstruct and rehabilitate approximately 500m of Wyrallah Road. These works include removing approximately 400mm of shoulder material and replacing this section with roadbase through the first 100m of the project from Lismore. Then, approximately 100mm of the existing surface will be overlaid and stabilised. Throughout the remaining 250m length of the road, crews will remove unsuitable material to an approximate depth of 600mm below existing heights and replace it with 500mm of rock, and 350mm of roadbase. This will result in an increased road height of approximately 250mm from the existing height to the finish surface height. Throughout this construction process drainage works, kerb installation and subsoil installation will also be completed.


    When are the works taking place?

    Works are scheduled to start from January 30th and are expected to take about four months to complete, subject to fine weather conditions. Daily work hours will mostly be between 7am and 5pm weekdays, although there may be some weekend work.


    What will be the traffic controls/detours?

    Due to the intensive nature of roadworks and associated traffic controls, there will unfortunately be some traffic disruptions. These traffic controls will include single land road closure. This will ensure the roadworks are completed in a timely manner, with safety as a predominant factor, by eliminating traffic through a single lane of this road throughout the construction footprint. Throughout the construction period there may be periods where 24/7 portable traffic lights will be needed to keep a travel lane closed overnight.

    Local access to residences will be maintained by actively managing residents’ needs within the construction footprint to allow access to homes, however, please be aware of delays. Electronic billboard signage will notify motorists of detours via Lismore and Tregeagle Road. Updates will also be available via Live Traffic NSW and Your Say (page details below). Road users are advised to seek alternate routes, as single lane closures are likely to cause heavy traffic delays.

    Please commute through the job sites at low speed, obey traffic control instructions and drive carefully.
