Clarification on Jerangle Road repairs

Published on 05 July 2024

Jerangle Road transitioning from paved to unpaved road surface

Snowy Monaro Regional Council is aware of community concerns regarding the ongoing repairs to Jerangle Road. We'd like to provide some clarity on the current works:

  1. Targeted repairs: The current project is grant funded by the Australian and NSW Governments. The terms of the funding agreement mean we can only use this funding to fix the damage caused by specific storm events in 2023 and 2024.

    While it may seem inefficient to repair only select sections of the road and leave near-by potholes unfilled, the allocation of grant funding dictates our maintenance program and does not allow for discretionary choices.

    This means that any damage that happened after the storms, or was already there before, can’t be repaired with this funding.

    We understand that the limitations of the current repair work may cause inconvenience, and are less than ideal. Council is very grateful for the support of our government partners, without which, we would not be able to fund even this limited work.

  2. Completion date: Weather permitting, we expect to finish these targeted repairs by Friday 12 July 2024.

  3. Additional maintenance: Our crews have started a full maintenance grade of the unsealed (gravel) sections of Jerangle Road.

  4. Traffic impacts: The road remains open, but please expect some delays. Follow all safety signs and drive to the conditions.

We're working as hard as we can to improve road conditions within our funding and resource limits, and will continue to seek all available grant funding to boost our efforts to provide safe and comfortable journeys for residents across the Snowy Monaro.

For questions or concerns, please contact Council on 1300 345 345 or email us at

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we complete these essential repairs, which will see improvements across the road surface on Jerangle Road.
