The landslip happened following the floods on 25 January and traffic is restricted to a single lane as council workers using an excavator hastily try to shore up the remainder of the road against further slippage using boulders.
Byron Shire Council’s executive manager of community infrastructure Phil Holloway has suggested residents stock up on food and supplies, including medications, as a precaution in case the road has to be closed for an extended period.
There have been changes to the Mullumbimby school bus service to Wilsons Creek and Main Arm to Upper Main Arm. For students living west of Wilsons Creek, bus 6 will wait on the eastern side of the landslip. These students are asked to walk across the landslip area and the bus will pick them up on the other side.
There will be no bus to Upper Main Arm owing to a washed-out causeway. All Main Arm services will commence at Palmwoods.
Drivers are reminded that today is a school day and that school zones will return to normal operation as of today.
