The Den Road, Mooral Creek

Current situation:

  • The Den Road sustained a series of serious landslips during the March 2021 and February 2022 Natural Disasters. Since these floods a significant amount of work has occurred on the road in an effort to maintain access.
  • In July 2022, while construction works were underway, another significant landslip slip occurred further up the road on private property. As a result, although the original Construction works have now been completed, access along The Den road is now significantly limited.
  • Access along The Den Road for vehicles over 4T is not advisable.

Future situation: 

  • The new landslip is beyond of the Council’s Zone of Management so alternate solutions are currently being investigated by local land-owners.

Bundook Road, Gloucester

Current situation:

Work to repair flood damage on Bundook Road, Gloucester will start on Monday 26 September. The road will be closed to all traffic for approximately two weeks.

The work will be done during the school holiday period so as to minimise the disruption to road users.

Alternative routes to exit Bundook will be either Belbora Creek Road or Bakers Creek Road. This may add 20 to 40 minutes to a journey, so residents are advised to plan trips accordingly.

The work will replace a flood damaged culvert. Replacing the culvert will provide the Bundook community with safer road access.

This project is being funded by the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) as a result of the 2021 natural disaster event.
