Restoring our infrastructure

The bushfires impacted 80 per cent of the Eurobodalla Shire, damaging lots of Council’s essential infrastructure, such as bridges and sewer facilities.

The Australian and NSW governments are providing funding assistance for much of the rebuilding work associated with transport infrastructure. Restoration of other assets is being funded through Council’s own resources and/or insurance claims.

We are working continually to restore access and services to help the community get back on track as quickly as possible.

Works include

  • Clearing 490km of Council roads impacted by fallen or hazardous trees
  • Replacing approximately 150 road signs and thousands of guideposts
  • Restoring access – Belowra Valley bridges
