Following strong winds overnight that led to the fall of a tree and fallen power lines Ballina Shire Council has temporarily closed Bulwinkle Park, Alstonville.
Power lines have also been damaged on Lismore Road, which may cause some traffic delays. Traffic control is currently in place to manage traffic flows and Essential Energy is on site to restore the infrastructure.
Ballina Shire Council is currently working to remove a fallen tree at Bulwinkle Park and is working with Essential Energy to restore fallen power lines. The park’s footbridge, which connects Alstonville to Wollongbar, is also closed and will remain closed until Council completes these urgent restoration works.
