Wilsons Creek Road will be closed to all traffic today from 9.45am to 2pm, and tomorrow and Saturday from 9.45am to 3pm.

Byron Shire Council’s community infrastructure works manager Tony Nash said the road needed to be closed to allow for urgent geotechnical borehole testing of the site.

‘The testing is needed so we can do further assessments on the road slip and determine the best way to fix the road permanently,’ Mr Nash said.

To enable parents to attend the Wilsons Creek Public School Swimming Carnival, works will cease an hour earlier today at 2pm, and the road will be open under traffic control conditions.

During these urgent works there will be no access to vehicles, except emergency service vehicles, on Wilsons Creek Road from the Wilsons Creek Public School, 300m to the west.

Pedestrian access is available through the worksite under the direction of traffic controllers.

The Wilsons Creek Road slip occurred on Australia Day, 50 metres past the Wilsons Creek School.
