Roadworks

TCouncil endeavours to keep residents up to date on current road conditions including during disaster and emergency situations and throughout planned works.

Whilst Council makes all efforts to ensure that information is accurate and up to date, this data is collated from a range of sources and all users should apply discretion and consider the relevance of this information in regards to their own particular circumstances. 

For weather-related road closures and warnings please visit the Local Road Conditions page.
Roadworks Information

The table below has information regarding roadworks which Council is undertaking including contact details if you require further information about the works listed.

Location Project Duration Comments
Cooks Lane, Cordelia

Open to all traffic under controlled conditions

Council would like to advise the public that there are currently controlled conditions in place on Cooks Lane, at the S bend section where the road crosses Lagoon Creek.

Due to a large washout surrounding a culvert that is close to the edge of the pavement, controlled conditions require a reduced speed limit of 60km. 

The reduced speed restrictions and signage currently in place on Cooks Lane is a temporary solution that has been in place since the flood events in March 2018 and is required to stay in place until flood damage restoration works are undertaken under the NDRRA Program.

Wallaman Falls Road, Lannercost

Open to all traffic under controlled conditions.

Council advises that Wallaman Falls Road is open to all traffic under CONTROLLED CONDITIONS.

The controlled conditions include two sections of road, approxiamately 5km from the bottom of the range, which are only open to one lane of traffic at a time.

Motorists are reminded that it is necessary to strictly adhere to all traffic signage, including speed restrictions and the requirement for descending traffic to stop at the nominated locations to allow ascending traffic right of way.
