Two sections of Urliup Road, Urliup, are being closed from today (Monday, 27 August) to allow Tweed Shire Council contractors to repair two landslips from the March 2017 floods.
No traffic will be able to pass through the closed sections, which will be closed in turn.
The two consecutive closures will make Urliup Road a no-through road for five weeks.
The first closure between 913-999 Urliup Road will run from Monday August 27 to Friday September 7 inclusive.
The second closure between 1039-1110 Urliup Rd will run from Monday September 10 to Friday September 28 inclusive.
Local residents will be able to enter Urliup Road but will not be able to pass through the closed sections.
They all will be able to access their property driveways but may have to detour via Dulguigan, Hogans and Bilambil roads.
The school bus will have to pick up and drop off children at set points due to a lack of turnaround options on Urliup Road. The new pick up / drop off points are:
1110 Urliup Road for northbound travel, and
587 Urliup Road for southbound travel.
Rubbish bin collections will not be affected as the contractor, Crosana, has made suitable arrangements so that no changes to the current schedule are required.
