Emergency supplies have been airdropped into a tiny NSW town cut off from the rest of the world.
Residents have been running low on fresh produce and even drinking water after three significant landslips left the town isolated.
“There is nothing really left on the shelves, they’re bulk buying, everyone worried about getting food here,” Michelle Armson told 9News.
The residents of Bellbrook are blocked off on all sides. To the east on Armidale Road is the rockslide at Devils Nook.
To the west another major landslide at Big Hill closed the road three weeks ago.
Yesterday, a third rock-fall occurred, and it now prevents Lower Creek residents from getting to Bellbrook, and their much-needed supplies.
It’s an ongoing issue that has frustrated residents for more than three years.
“We keep contacting the councils, we keep contacting the state members, we’re getting a lot of words but we’re not getting the action,” Leanne Weigand said.
“It’s costing us financially, mentally and emotionally as well… it’s very frustrating, very upsetting, you feel like we’re not being heard.”
Kempsey Shire Council hopes to reopen one lane early next week and said it will continue discussions with the state government for a longer-term fix.
