Wolgan Gap Disaster Response

Wolgan Valley

Wolgan Road was closed to traffic in November 2022 by Council due to the high risk of harm resulting from continued slope instability. Council engaged Public Works to construct an interim alternate access road along the eastern side of the Wolgan Gap based closely on the route of an existing historic track known as the Donkey Steps. 

This access has provided some relief by allowing restricted access for residents but is not suitable as a permanent all vehicle access solution in replacement of the original (now closed) road on the western side of the valley.
