Roadworks and closures

Our local road network has suffered significant damage following the 2022 floods. We ask motorists to please drive to road conditions and be patient as we undertake the enormous task of fixing our roads.

Stay up to date with what's happening on our roads, follow us on Facebook or visit Live Traffic NSW.

Council is generally responsible for public roads within the Tweed except the Pacific Motorway and Gold Coast Highway, which are the responsibility of Transport for New South Wales.

For more information on road ownership and maintenance responsibilities for driveways, private and crown roads and bridges visit our roads and bridges page.

Other works

From time to time, NSW Goverment's Roads and Maritime Services and the City of Gold Coast will advise us of major roadworks that may affect Tweed motorists. We will publish the information here.

For the latest information about planning, construction and operation of infrastructure projects in NSW go to Roads and Maritime Services project page.

How we plan to deliver safe, well maintained roadsHow we build, upgrade and maintain a safe and connected local road network

Our Roads and Stormwater unit is responsible for providing and maintaining a network of local roads and bridges, footpaths and cycleways that is safe, efficient and accessible.

Our Delivery Plan(PDF, 6MB) (see page 55) outlines:

  • the road projects and services we plan to deliver over the next 4 years
  • what we will use to deliver them
  • how we will measure and report on these to the community.

The capital works and associated funding outlined in the Delivery Program may be subject to change as a result of the amount of post flood infrastructure rebuilding works ahead for Council. 

Learn more about how we build, upgrade and maintain a safe and connected local road network, including how we prioritise road maintenance projects.

Black spot programs

Under the Australian Government's Black Spot Program, we target specific road locations where crashes are occurring by funding measures such as traffic signals, roundabouts, safety barrier and audio-tactile line marking (ATLM) to reduce the risk of further crashes.
