NPWS is currently progressing the repair of the landslip near the entry gate. The steps in the repair are complex. The geo-technical reports have been provided and the best repair option determined. The remediation design and specification stage will begin shortly with the tendering for a specialised contractor. to occur ASAP in the new year. The repair of the length of Bangalow Road has been completed but the landslip site itself is potentially unstable after heavy rain and is not safe for the public to use. The entry gate will remain locked and no visitor access including pedestrians are permitted. NPWS is aiming to have all work completed and visitor access restored prior to Easter 2022.
