Lamington National Park Road, Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements reconstruction works
The department is working on multiple locations along Lamington National Park Road which require pavement rehabilitation and permanent reconstruction work following record rainfall across south east Queensland since December 2020.
Lamington National Park Road has a history of being impacted by wet weather events and is one of many roads in the Gold Coast Hinterland to suffer severe damage following record rainfall across south east Queensland since December 2020.
In December 2021, a significant landslip occurred on the mountainside, taking part of Lamington National Park Road with it, resulting in the instability of the road. The department responded quickly to clear unsafe material, stabilise the slope and build a side-track to ensure the road could remain open for the local community and allow visitors continued access to Lamington National Park.
