Delays due to highway upgrade
MOTORISTS are being advised of changed traffic conditions as of today due to work on the Sapphire to Woolgoolga Pacific Highway upgrade.
A spokesperson from the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) said that weather permitting, traffic controls would be in place tomorrow and Wednesday between 9.30am and 2.30pm on the stretch of highway from Korora to Moonee to allow for the installation of concrete barriers on road shoulders, tree clearing next to the highway and line marking.
Geotechnical drilling investigations are planned for Thursday between 9.30am and 5pm and also require traffic control.
The RTA is also advising that night work planned from today until Wednesday between 7pm and 6am will require traffic control for the installation of line marking.
Traffic flows will also be restricted on the highway just north of Coffs Harbour on Wednesday night.
The RTA is planning to undertake maintenance work at Macauleys Headland between 7pm and midnight, weather permitting.
The maintenance will involve replacing drilling holes in the surface of a concrete embankment at the side of the road so water can drain properly.
An RTA spokesperson said during the course of the work it would be necessary to restrict traffic flow and there might be short delays.
There will also be noise associated with this work, however, the RTA is promising every effort will be made to minimise the impact on local residents and businesses.
Motorists are asked to follow temporary signposting and traffic control measures and to proceed with care through this worksite
