Residents of Broke say they accept the amount of work needed to repair Broke Road means it will remain closed for another six months.
Council has updated the village on design work already conducted on the job following the flood last month that caused a massive collapse on a section of Broke Road, cutting off direct access to and from Singleton.
Residents currently can only get to Singleton via travelling along Hermitage Road through Pokolbin then left onto the New England Highway.
Angela Andonopoulos from Broke Residents Community Association said there's no quick fix option.
