Temporary traffic lights to manage flow through slip area
Temporary traffic lights to manage flow through slip area

Temporary traffic lights have been placed on a section of Clothiers Creek Road reduced to one lane by a landslip in the 1 April flood.


The section, between Farrants Road and Norths Lane, also has been placed under a 4.5-tonne vehicle weight limit after a geotechnical assessment indicated that heavy vehicle usage through the slip area should be limited to essential services.  School buses and garbage trucks will be exempt from the weight limit.


Council will install more signage on the section over coming weeks to further advise of the weight limit.


Heavy vehicle operators are advised to use alternate routes between Bogangar and Nunderi, avoiding Clothiers Creek Road.


The temporary traffic lights will remain in place until rehabilitation works on the section can be undertaken. While these works will be prioritised, as yet no start date has been set.
