Overnight closures of Waterfall Way to repair rain damage
ROADS and Maritime Services has announced two night closures of Waterfall Way between Dorrigo and Bellingen to assist with remedial works to the traffic route damaged in last month's heavy rains.
The road will be closed east of Dorrigo from Summervilles Road to Maynards Road on Sunday, June 14, and Monday, June 15.
The closure will be from 10pm until 5am the following morning, on both days weather permitting.
Portable message signs will be in place to alert traffic to take alternate routes.
This road closure is required to repair damaged kerbs and drainage and to improve slope stability.
A number of sites have been identified for treatment to improve safety.
Further sites are planned to start within the next six months.
Work involves vegetation removal, scaling of identified loose rocks and boulders.
The work near Maynards Plains Road will take about three weeks to finish, weather permitting.
Heavy rains in early May caused a landslip that closed Waterfall Way at Gordonville Cutting for two days.
The road through the cutting area has been included in the work to remove vegetation, scaling of loose rocks and boulders.
