Most of the landslips have been restored.

The worst landslip occurred 25.5km south of Gloucester, where an 80-metre section of road crashed down the hillside.

“The road is closed to all traffic.

“There is no detour around the landslip, so we’re very pleased work can begin,” said Executive Manager Transport and Engineering, Peter Gesling.

“The landslip is large and difficult to repair, so it has taken time to develop a suitable plan and find a contractor with the right skills.

“Design and construction planning is complete and we’ve engaged a contractor.

“Work will begin with vegetation clearing.

“Earthworks will start in early January, weather permitting.

“We will use bulk cut and fill earthworks to realign the road along a similar path to the previous section of road.”

It will be necessary to bring some building materials and plant to the site, so an increase in construction traffic is expected.

Most construction vehicles will approach the site from the north. Every effort will be made to limit the impact of construction on local roads and residents.

Construction is expected to take up to six months to complete.

This work is funded by the Australian Government and NSW State Government.
