Wisemans Ferry Road

SuburbStart dateRoad nameReasonAdditional information
Gunderman/Spencer20 February 2024Wisemans Ferry Road Road Open

A section of Wisemans Ferry Road (approx. 10km west of Spencer) has been impacted by landslips and instability has a higher risk of further impacts during significant rainfall.

In accordance with geotechinical expert advice to reduce the risk of further slope instability and safety risks for the public, Council has put in place protocols where the road is temporarily closed when more than 30mm rain occurs in a 24hr period.  

Notice will be provided to the community on Council’s Facebook page (@CentralCoastCouncil) of an impending closure with as much notice as possible, and we will provide an update of the status when the road is closed with anticipated re-opening details, and again once the road has re-opened following an inspection of Council’s geotechnical consultant.  

Note: Council is prioritising investigations and the development of treatments to address a longer term solution for Wisemans Ferry Road, along with specialised geotechnical consultants.   Council is regularly meeting with representatives of Transport for NSW and submitting requests for grant funding to carry out repairs.  Council will be communicating with the community shortly in relation to the program of works for Wisemans Ferry Road.
