NAMBUCCA Shire Council is almost ready to begin urgent work on Boat Harbour Road.

Mayor Rhonda Hoban said Director Engineering Services, Paul Gallagher, has announced the final design and specification for the landslip remediation work has been received by Council.

"The RMS gave Council approval to call tenders for the construction of the works and the tender was released yesterday," the mayor advised.

"Tenders will close on May 15."

Meanwhile Gallagher advised that provided the RMS concur that the tendered price ensures fair and reasonable value in accordance with Natural Disaster funding guidelines, a report on the results of the tender prices will be presented to the Council on the May 31 for adoption.

That would lead to the engagement of a contractor to undertake the remediation works.

"Council will be in a better position to provide a timeline for the commencement and completion of remediation works on Boat Harbour Road once a contractor has been formally engaged," he added.

Again, Council has reminded motorists wishing to access localities such as Bakers Creek, Taylors Arm, Upper Taylors Arm, Burrapine and Thumb Creek to take alternate routes.

These are Taylors Arm Road (South Bank) where a 20 tonne load limit remains on Swans Bridge, or, Congarinni Road North, Talarm Road, Welshs Creek Road and Williams Hill Road.

Significant lengths of these roads are unsealed and motorists should exercise extreme caution at all times and obey any speed limits imposed on these routes.

Residents can report any problems experienced on roads to Council's emergency after hours line on 0417 488 565 or (02) 6568 2555 during normal business hours.

Residents of the Nambucca Shire can access information relating to the status of roads and bridges on Council's website www.nambucca.nsw.gov.au.
