Major Repair Works at Back Creek, Burragorang Road

Torrential rain during February caused havoc across the Wollondilly Shire, with crews working tirelessly to repair damage to the road network to make it safe for drivers.

Back Creek at Burragorang Rd, Belimbla Park has major damage, with the culvert and road washed away by the enormous quantity of stormwater which ran down the creek. Trees upstream were also dislodged by the strength of the water flow.

Planned Works

Design for the permanent reconstruction of the road is already under way and has been given the highest priority in the long list of repairs to be carried out across the Shire.

The first priority is water and sewer, with Sydney Water currently working to restore these services for the local community.

 

Diversions

Diversions are in place for light vehicles along Binalong Rd and Russell Lane and Council will be monitoring the alternate route and carrying out repairs as required.

Council is working to provide alternative access for heavy vehicles along Montpelier Dr and Barkers Lodge Rd.
