    The March 2021 flood event has had a significant impact on local residents and their properties along Greens Road, Lower Portland.
    Council staff have inspected Greens Road a number of times and assessed the impact of the flood on the road. The following action plan has been developed:
    • The road subsidence located south of Juniors on Hawkesbury remains open at this stage with a 5 tonne weight restriction for vehicles
    • The road subsidence located north of Juniors on Hawkesbury has been closed to through traffic due to safety concerns
    • A geotechnical firm has been engaged to investigate:
    1. the best way forward to re-establish a safe road network at both locations
    2. possible short term options to improve the road stability
    3. an increase to the current 5 tonne weight restriction
    The preliminary geotechnical investigations have been undertaken and the geotechnical firm will be commencing on site later this week. Information from the investigation should be available within approximately 2 weeks of commencing on site. This information will then be shared with the community.
    The traffic control near Wheelbarrow Ridge Road will remain in place until further notice.
    We will continue to keep the local community informed of the situation as it develops. If you have any questions in relation to the planned works or any other concerns please contact Council’s Customer Service on 45604444.
