The Rifle Range Road intersection upgrade has begun in Bangalow, says Council staff, after a false start last month.

The works include widening Lismore Road, drainage upgrades, new bus bays and shelters on both Lismore Road and Rifle Range Road ‘and beautiful new shared paths connecting the bus bays to Tristania Street’.

Meanwhile, resident Scott Tulloch contacted The Echo to say that the Saint Helena Road at McLeods Shoot has been ‘close to undriveable’ for the last three months.

‘We have witnessed three cars over the edge, only to be saved by tree stumps otherwise they would end up in Ewingsdale’.

Director, Infrastructure Services, Phil Holloway told The Echo, ‘St Helena Road will be addressed with funding received via Immediate Restoration Works following April’s rain event. ‘This funding has just come through, and works should happen within the next six weeks (weather dependent)’.

Regarding a new patch of road that is failing on Prince Street in Mullum (near the pod village), Mr Holloway says ‘further geotechnical investigations are expected in the coming weeks to determine the underlying issues’.
