Additional changes to local roads

From Monday 17 September, line marking and installing sign will be carried at the intersection of Garretts Lane and Iluka Road, Woombah. Traffic control will be in place between 7am and 6pm.

Oversize and over mass deliveries are continuing as the project team moves more than 8500 large concrete pieces from precast yards in Macksville, Coffs Harbour and Brisbane to site. Motorists can see where the trucks are travelling by using the project team’s PAC real time delivery map at rms.nsw.gov.au/w2b.

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.
