Byron Shire Council has confirmed landslip repairs have started on upper Possum Shoot Road, albeit a fortnight later than expected.
The road has been closed since the landslip occurred during floods on February 21, 2013.
Specialised Geo Pty Ltd is carrying out the repairs, at a cost of about $370,600.
The contractor expects work to be completed by November, weather permitting. Road barriers are in place and the road at the work site is closed to all to road users including pedestrians and cyclists.
Access for residents will still be available from either end of the road.
Work on lower Possum Shoot Road are expected to commence shortly following the awarding for that contract to Doval Constructions for $1.13 million on September 22.
The repairs are expected to take about four months.
Access for residents will be available through the lower work site, until the upper work site is complete.
Motorists are requested to please adhere to all traffic control signage to assist with safety.
It is not the first time Possum Creek Road has been closed due to landslips. A similar incident in April 2008 and repairs were not commenced until August 2009.
