A 39-year-old male roadworker suffered a 'crush injury' underneath cement-stabilised sand.

Ambulance Media said paramedics were called to Alex Pike Dr, Raleigh at 9.45am.

The man's lower body was briefly trapped when cement-stabilised sand dislodged.

He was rushed to Coffs Harbour Health Campus in a serious condition but according to Mid North Coast Local Health District Media, the man is now in a stable condition. 

Lend Lease who is carrying out work on the site has stopped work on all similar activities on the project.
