The L’Étape Australia cycling event which was scheduled to go through the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Wingecarribee and Kiama Council areas has been cancelled.

Lateral Events were not 100 per cent confident that Jamberoo Mountain Road would open in time for the 26-27 November event.

It follows a landslip during recent wet weather which resulted in 60 metres of road failing.

This section of road was to be used twice for the 2022 Race route and once for the Ride route.

Kiama Council had given assurances the road would likely be fixed, with at least one lane open for the race.

Despite this assurance, the event will not go ahead.
