How many potholes can the council fill before Christmas break?

Finally, Kyogle Council has started remediating the troubled section of the Clarence Way between Woodenbong and Urbenville.

That section of road has been crumbling since the beginning of the year.

Construction works were paused as workers identified the issues with the final layer of pavement material.

“Council is working closely with its suppliers and contractors to verify the exact nature of the issue and the treatment required,” Mr Kennett said in February this year.

Those issues have been resolved enough for council workers to fix the road which had crumbling soft edges and potholes.

While the road crew is currently working between Urbenville and Becks Bridge, they will tidy up a number of the worst sections of the road before the Christmas break.

The upgrade of the Bruxner Highway on the Mallanganee Range is all but complete.

The landslip on the Mallanganee Range has taken nine months after several landslips on the Bruxner Highway after the floods.

The council’s construction crew sealed the road yesterday, Tuesday, December 6 and all that remains is the clean-up.

The crew will then move to the western side of the range where they will start a $4 million upgrade project on the highway. The work will involve widening a section of the highway, adding kerb and guttering, and improving the road surface.

The crew will be sealing the first of two sections of Clarence Way at Sandilands on Friday, December 9 with the  second section to be sealed before the Christmas break.

The upgrade of Dyraaba Rd continues. Work has started on laying the base course of the new section of the road. This section will be completed in January.

The council also has a construction crew doing flood damage rehabilitation on the sealed section of Bingeebeebra Creek Rd.

Flood damage grading is happening on Brindle Creek, Green Pigeon, Joes Box and Yabbra roads.

Flood damage drainage crews are still on Wender, Tabulam, Bentley, Bean Creek, Cob O Corn, Lynches Creek , Pines, Old Lawrence, Bingeebeebra and Old Dyraaba roads.

Once these jobs are completed, they will move to Tulks, Hillyards, Shorts, Brown Knob, Newtons, James, Gooley, and Saunders roads as well as the Roseberry and Boorabee catchments.

Landslip repairs are also in progress on Kyogle Rd, Dyraaba Rd, and at four sites on Tabulam Rd. Work to repair a landslip on Wender Rd is expected to start next week.

Pothole patching has been completed on the Mt Lindesay Rd into Woodenbong.

There are roadworks on the Mt Lindesay Rd on the Queensland side.

This crew has now returned to Clarence Way and is expected to stay on the Clarence Way until the break.

The other pothole patching crew is finishing up on Gradys Creek Rd and will then move to Bentley Rd and Kyogle Rd with aim of doing as much as possible before the break.

Work is progressing at Olesons Bridge on Collins Creek Rd, and at Capeen Creek Bridges number 1 and 2.

Work has started on a new bridge on Levers Rd. Work on the new bridges on Tunglebung Creek, Pines and Iron Pot Creek roads continues.
