Landslip damage is repaired

ACCESS to one of the region’s most beautiful beaches has finally been restored.

A landslip which was blocking vehicles from reaching Tuckers Rock Beach east of Repton has now been removed as part of a road repair program within the Bongil Bongil National Park.

NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service (NPWS) Coffs Coast area manger Glen Storrie said the removal of the landslide above the beachside car park had been a priority.

“Other works will now replace temporary repairs following the damaging flood and storm events last year,” Mr Storrie said.

“The works will significantly improve the safety and comfort for visitors and neighbours of Bongil Bongil National Park”, he said

“Tenders for the contract have recently been awarded to a road maintenance company Australian Grader Hire. The majority of the works will involve ripping, reforming and re-sheeting damaged gravel roads throughout the Park. Importantly these road works will improve access for the Rural Fire Service and NPWS fire fighting vehicles.”

Mr Storrie said the road works may entail temporary closures of some roads within Bongil Bongil National Park.

“Visitors will need to proceed with caution and seek alternative routes where required,” he said.
