Changed traffic conditions and night work for Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade

Changed traffic conditions continue next week on the Pacific Highway to progress the Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade.

On Tuesday 14 August, one night of work will be carried out on the Pacific Highway, Woombah to install a drainage culvert. Both lanes will remain open with traffic control and a reduced speed limit in place during construction hours. Motorists may experience short delays while travelling in this area and are advised to follow the direction of traffic control.

On Wednesday 15 August, there will be one night of work on the Pacific Highway, Harwood to remove traffic barriers north of the Harwood Bridge. There will be a reduced speed limit, lane closures and traffic control.

A temporary speed reduction to 80km/h for a 1.5 kilometre section of the Pacific Highway near Maclean will be in place until September to allow construction vehicle access to the project site north of the BP service station.

Additional changes to local roads

On Monday 13 August, controlled blasting will be carried out at the Gibsons borrow site, Bagotville. Traffic will be stopped on Old Bagotville Road in both directions while controlled blasting takes place. Motorists may experience short delays while travelling in this area.

From Wednesday 15 August, local traffic will be diverted onto the completed overpass bridge on Wooli Road, Pillar Valley. There will be a reduced speed limit and traffic control in place during construction hours.

For the safety of workers and motorists, reduced speed limits and traffic control will be in place on the highway, local roads and access roads.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead, drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control as short delays are expected at most locations.

Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while work on the upgrade is carried out.
