Council is responsible for all public roads within the shire except the Pacific Motorway, which is the responsibility of Roads and Maritime Services (telephone 131 700). For more information about road repairs and maintenance, including streetlights, visit Roads and Bridges.

Every week, Council will post on Facebook and Twitter a "Heads up" message about roadworks on any of its major roads so you can avoid these roads and any delays if possible. It will target community-based Facebook pages to publicise roadworks on local or minor roads. You can also view a 'road wrap' below of current roadworks and those coming up soon. The dates shown are indicative only and may change due to weather or resource availability.

All customers are reminded to visit for information on all roadworks and closures in the Northern Rivers local government areas.

Stabilisation program - at times expect long delays

Stabilisation works are designed to return roads to as-new condition. Weather and resources permitting, they take about five days to do over a two-week period. The old thin road surface is milled off and then cement or lime is mixed through the existing gravel substructure and recompacted before a new asphalt wearing surface is put down. Once the cement or lime mix is applied and watered in, the job cannot be closed down until compaction is completed. One lane closures are required for these jobs and motorists should expect long delays.

This program has been delayed and will start in early 2021.
Banora Point: Leisure Drive
Cudgen: Tweed Coast Road
Pottsville: Pottsville Road
Tweed Heads: Enterprise Avenue
Banora Point: Deep-lift asphalt Leisure Drive
Tweed Heads South: Deep-lift asphalt Traders Way
