Landslip, rock fall warning ahead of rainy weekend

With up to 200mm of rain forecast for this weekend in the Tweed region, the Council is urging motorists to slow down and take extreme caution on roads across the shire.

The Council has warned drivers to to “expect the unexpected” – with any amount of rain able to cause further landslips and rock falls across the steep rural roads which are still saturated from the flooding that hit the region in late March and early April.

“If we get the forecast 200mm or more, we should expect more damage to and debris on our roads,” said the Tweed Shire Council’s Manager of Infrastructure Delivery, Tim Mackney.


Motorists who see fresh damage on our roads are asked to report it to Council so it can be logged for repair by calling 6670 2400 during office hours, 1300 292 872 after hours, or through the Tweed Shire Council’s app from the App Store or Google Play.
