Storm Updates in Ballina Shire

For the latest road closures in Ballina Shire and surrounding Council areas visit myroadinfo.com.au

There are many roads with debris causing hazards to motorists with some closures. Council staff are attending to clear debris but seek the patience of the public as this may take some time. Please be aware that conditions can change quickly so please exercise extreme caution. Better still avoid unnecessary driving and stay indoors.

STORMWATER AND URBAN STREET FLOODING

It is impossible for Council to inspect and signpost all urban roads, so if water is over the road exercise extreme caution or avoid it all together.

SEWER BACKLOG IS CLEARING

Backing up or slow draining water may occur in lower lying areas. Be patient to allow for the water to escape. Also avoid using washing machines, dishwashers, baths and showers until the water has cleared. It is not necessary to boil drinking water. Water and sewer networks are very separate systems.

COASTLINE AND BEACHES

Coastal erosion may have occurred at our beaches, impacting access tracks and coastal dunes. It is recommended to stay away from beaches.
