The scenic road was built by the Lions Club community in 1971.
Covid border closures, road repairs and landslips have often caused this road to be closed.
The current closure is because of the recent heavy rain.
Kyogle Council said work crews have started to clear the landslip which closed Lions Rd from Murphy Standfield’s culvert to the Queensland border.
The wet weather has impacted the work but the council expects to re-open the road before the end of the month.
In the meantime, the top section of Lions Rd remains closed to all traffic.
This may be the time to order a Is the Lions Rd open? t-shirt. See link below.

Sink hole on Simpkins Creek Rd
Ongoing issues with the sink hole on Simpkins Creek Rd have forced the council to impose a 10-tonne load limit on the road.
Potholes on Clarence Way
Kyogle Council continues to patch potholes on Clarence Way having almost made it to Old Bonalbo from Woodenbong. The crew will move to Bonalbo to repair some dangerous potholes in town before moving south from Old Bonalbo.
Kyogle Rd works
The council are completing the last couple of sections on Kyogle Rd, after finishing work on Fawcetts Plain Rd, Collins Creek Rd, Wiangaree Back Rd, Mt Lindesay Highway, and streets in Woodenbong.
Unfortunately, the ongoing rain and the saturated subsoil means that as soon as staff finish repairing one section of road, more potholes appear.
Potholes to be fixed next week
The pothole repair crews will work on Clarence Way, Findon Creek Rd, Omagh Rd, Lynches Creek Rd, Summerland Way and the Bruxner Highway.
