Major Projects


December 2022
Contractors have recommenced onsite (as of December 5th) and are currently removing all remaining infrastructure in preparation to construct the concrete base – this is planned to be completed prior to Christmas. From this point, the rest of the work will take approximately eight weeks to complete, weather permitting.

November 2022
With the storm event that took place on 31 October and the rain we received in the area after this date, the work that had already been completed was damaged and repairs were delayed.

The Contractors hired for repair works will have the concrete base (that the culverts are placed on) completed prior to Christmas. From this point, the rest of the work will take eight weeks to complete, weather permitting.

October 2022
Contractors are now on site to repair the damaged culvert at Broken Dam Creek on Murrumbateman Road.
With more wet weather on the way, the works should be completed within the next eight weeks, weather permitting. 

A reminder to visitors and locals in the area that our wineries and local businesses, on Murrumbateman Road are still open and accessible despite the road being closed at the culvert!

Please see the map below for a detailed list of businesses as well as the diversions that are in place (highlighted in green) to help you travel safely around the road closure.

A note on traffic 
The Traffic Guidance Scheme (TGS) for the closure of Murrumbateman Road due to the partial collapse and reconstruction of the culvert at Broken Dam Creek has been developed to comply with TfNSW requirements and to reduce the volume of transiting traffic from having to complete a U-turn at an inappropriate location, particularly for heavy vehicles and cars towing caravans.  Murrumbateman Road is a Regional Road and the majority of users are not local traffic but transiting traffic.  The TGS has been designed to direct motorists to use alternate routes as opposed to Murrumbateman Road and Nanima Road. As Nanima Road is not designed for the volume of traffic and can be closed at short notice due to flooding, transiting traffic is encouraged to not travel down the Murrumbateman Road and the TGS reinforces this. 

Local Traffic is traffic that has a destination within the local area, not just local residents. Murrumbateman Road remains closed to transiting traffic and open to local traffic only.
