Work has started on a new section of levee wall for Lismore, following the appearance of a crack in the old levee adjacent to the rear of the old Lismore Club after floods two years ago.

Funding has been received from the Natural Disaster Relief Scheme to replace a section of the wall and shore up a section of destabilised river bank that led to the cracking of the old wall.

A 1970s extension to the Lismore Club has been demolished to make way for the new wall, which will be significantly further back from the river. Then work will commence on stabilising the bank and finally removing the failed section of levee.
