Kyogle Road will remain open today to one lane under traffic lights. The continuing wet weather has stopped work on the landslip restoration at the Cawongla range again today and the road will not be closed.

Temporary repairs to Barkers Bridge on Williams Rd were damaged and the bridge is closed.

Lions Rd is down to one lane near the Border Loop after rain at the weekend worsened an existing landslip.

The bridge crew is expected to be working on the damaged Capeen Creek Road bridge tomorrow, weather permitting.

The damaged bridge has been isolating residents at the top end of Capeen Creek since the February 28 flood.

Other roads that remain closed that have detours in place are:

Lillian Rock Rd (detour is expected to be in place long term)

Geneva Street, Kyogle (detour is expected to be in place long term)

Summerland Way is restricted to one lane of traffic at Burnetts. The single lane closure will be in place for some time.

The Bruxner Hwy continues to be restricted to one lane at two locations west of Mummulgum.

Landslips have closed one lane of the highway on the Mallanganee Range and near Rogers Road east of Tabulam. Both lane closures are expected to remain in place for some time.

LONG WAIT: Landslip repairs on Bruxner Highway could take eight weeks to fix
