What's happening on our roads?

'Like' or 'Follow' Tweed Shire Council on Facebook (external link) or 'Follow' us on Twitter (external link) to stay up to date with what's happening on our roads.

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). Council maintains its roads and roadside reserves within the limits of its budget and resources.

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.

But if Facebook and Twitter don't work for you, the information below will keep you informed of current roadworks and those coming up soon. The dates shown below 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:

Stabilisation works are undertaken to repair soft spots in the road substructure using a cement material and then reapplying an asphalt pavement. The works require milling off the existing road surface and then mixing cement through the existing underlying gravel material to improve the road quality. It’s a tricky process in that once the cement has been watered we’ve got a four-hour window to shape, trim and compact the gravel and cannot close down the job until it’s done. A waterproofing seal is then applied to the exposed gravel surface and then the final asphalt seal is applied.

Tweed Heads: Nightworks to stabilise Florence Street, from Wharf Street to Powell Street, start on Tuesday 21 May to the night of Thursday 26 May.

Then there will be a one-week shutdown for the Cooly Rocks On festival from Sunday 2 June to Sunday 9 June before the works shift to the entire length of Boyd Street from Sunday 9 June to the night of Thursday 20 June.

The works will take place between 7pm-5am.
No work is undertaken on Friday and Saturday nights.
Residents and emergency vehicles will be allowed through the work zones.

Terranora: This week starting 20 May we will finalise the section of road between Sunnycrest and the Fraser Drive roundabout with asphalt placement. These works will take approximately four days to complete as the Contractor will work around peak hour morning and afternoon traffic.

The sealed section between Fraser and O’Sullivan Drive will be left for another couple of weeks before asphalt placed at the end of May.

Johnson Street has been reconstructed and sealed. Asphalt will not be placed on this section until towards the end of May.

It has not been possible to undertake these works as nightworks due to the close proximity of residential housing (22 March - 24 May).

Murwillumbah: Stabilisation works on Byangum Road, from Wade to Myrtle streets and from Barnby to near Bagoo Avenue, have started and will continue to end of May. Motorists are advised to find an alternate route if possible or plan for long delays.

Other roadworks:

Banora Point: kerb and gutter installation Pioneer Parade (to end of May).

Byangum: Blackspot Programme works at Bakers Road intersection nearing completion.

Byrrill Creek: construction of new bridge (ends 21 June). All traffic is now travelling on a single lane across the new bridge deck and the old temporary bridge is being demolished. Byrrill Creek Road will be closed to all traffic on Tuesday 21 May between 9.30am and 2.30pm to allow the bridge barriers to be built. All traffic will need to detour via Tyalgum or plan their trip to avoid the closures.

On Kyogle Road at the intersection with Byrrill Creek Road, we are improving safety for vehicles turning right into Byrrill Creek Road under a federally funded Blackspot Program. We are also installing guardrail on Kyogle Road to protect motorists from steep drop-offs. Stop / slow flagmen are on site and motorists should expect delays (to end of May).

Clothiers Creek: Blackspot program to install guardrail north of Condor Place (to early June).

Crystal Creek: Reshaping Numinbah Road (end June-early July).

Eviron: Seal Bartletts Road (to end of June).
