Northernmost causeway closed due to persistent wet weather
Causeway replacement planned for August 2018
Lions Rd detours
Kyogle Council spokesman Tony Lickiss has defended the unsealed detours on the Lions Rd.
He says the road has had “an enormous volume of riders over the low road in the last month and we have received some complaints”.
“But when viewed over the number of riders accessing the road the percentage is diminishingly small,” he says.
“If people take a common sense approach to the crossing there is no issue and full-fledged road bikes are negotiating it without issues. If you take it as a stage in a TT then yes, you will have issues.
“Our anecdotal feedback from the vast majority is it’s a bit of an adventure and there is no problems.
“We will be touching up the crossings as soon as possible when and if the river ever goes down. Until then the Summerland Way is the primary route.”
Summerland Way roadworks
Good news is that the major roadworks on the alternative route between Rathdowney and Kyogle over the Summerland Way are now finished.
We suggest that if you plan riding anywhere in NSW this Easter, first check the RMS Live Traffic website for updates and alerts on closures and delays.
