Traffic control remains in place at the site of the massive land slip on the Bruxner Highway at the Mallanganee range.

Traffic lights control single lane traffic flow and are expected to remain in place for a number of weeks.

A Transport for NSW representative said the soil at the site was still too wet to allow geotechnical investigations.

“These investigations, once complete, will inform engineering solutions,” the representative said.

Work is continuing to restore the slope at the landslip on the Bruxner Highway near Rodgers Rd, between Mallanganee and Tabulam.

Single lane alternating traffic flow arrangements are in place.

A specialist contractor has been engaged to carry out restoration work at this site.

This work is expected to take eight weeks to complete, weather permitting.
