A spokesperson for NSW Transport Management Centre said Richmond Valley Council traffic controllers and the utility company were on scene.

She said there was currently no forecast for how long the repairs would take.

One quarter of the roundabout has been closed.

This means traffic going from Grafton to Lismore has been diverted along Centre St to Dyraaba St, then Walker St and back onto Johnston St.

Neither has traffic travelling from Lismore to Grafton and Kyogle.
