You will find all the latest repair works for Flood Recovery - Roads and Bridges. All current works that have updates are categorised by project name. If viewing via a smartphone, you can find the 'Projects by Name' at the bottom of this page.


Why was this page designed?

Since the February 2022 natural disaster, we have had an extended period of wet weather, which has significantly affected our road network. It rained three out of four days between November 2021 and April 2022.

This resulted in 90% of our 1200km road network suffering extensive damage, with an estimated $200 million to rebuild and repair. Significant damage also occurred to many bridges, causeways, reinforced concrete pipes, reinforced concrete box culverts and footpaths across our road network. Some key access roads have been reduced to single lanes due to landslips.

Immediately after flood waters receded, our road crews conducted emergency repairs on more than 80 roads to allow access for residents. Several construction crews worked extended hours to ensure damaged roads were reopened/made safe as soon as possible. As the repairs progress, we will provide more detailed updates on the specific flood-related damage to our road network and information on how you can report damaged roads to Council.

Assessments are underway at the larger and more complex damaged sites. There are specific engineering tasks in some areas which are necessary and will take time. Some sites may see temporary measures such as side-track access, temporary pothole repair and gravel roads before permanent construction works at these locations commence. Planning will continue to ensure works are undertaken as quickly as possible. Priorities are based on public safety with consideration of further damage, maintaining access and links between communities, hierarchy of roads and efficiency of results.


What process does Council have to go through when we have a 'disaster event'?

When we experience a natural disaster such as a flood event, which causes significant damage to our infrastructure, there are a number of steps that Council has to go through, like an insurance claim process. Council identifies, assesses and then makes a claim for the damage from the appropriate funding body. As we do not have the money to pay for these kind of extraordinary events from our day to day budgets. There are strict rules regarding documentation.

There are multiple steps in this process including design investigation, final design, approval, scheduling of work crews and/or engagement of contractors so there can be a long lag time from the actual event to the rectification works being started and completed. The table below shows further details and indicative timings for the steps in this process: (All timings are subject to weather, contractor and material availability)


Major Flood Recovery Works Map

Flood restoration works are critical to repairing damages caused by previous natural disasters and getting life back on track. However, these works can be complex, especially when dealing with large-scale disasters like the February 2022 event. At Lismore City Council, we understand the challenges that come with flood restoration works and are proud to launch this interactive map focusing on major flood recovery works within the Lismore LGA to assist the community with finding efficient, up-to-date information. Please note, timeframes are subject to change in the next few months as the project delivery strategy evolves.

    COMPLETED WORKS
    Geotechnical Investigations
    During the last 5 months geotechnical investigations have taken place across the entire Lismore shire region. These works have involved using a drilling rig to understand subsurface conditions at the many landslip, bridge and culvert crossing locations. This information is vital in determining the most appropriate restoration design solution for these locations. All landslip, culvert and bridge geotechnical investigations have now been completed. We would like to thank residents for your patience and resilience during this time.


    CURRENT WORKS
