Araluen Road showing landslide after flooding

Specialised Geo have finished work repairing the slips on the unsealed section towards Merricumbene. The road is open to traffic.


There have been multiple landslips and other damage to Araluen Road from flood events in August 2020, November/December 2021 and the most recent March 2022 event. We worked with Transport for NSW to confirm funding under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) and gain their approvals for the work.

Eurobodalla Shire Council are also dealing with a number of significant landslides on their section of Araluen Road. You can find information about this work on their website.

The first four identified slippages were repaired and guardrails installed. This work was completed in early 2023.

We sought tenders for the remaining sites and this was awarded at the 22 March 2023 meeting to Specialised Geo Pty Ltd.

They set up on site on 27 April 2023. They completed work and the road was open to traffic in September 2023.
