Maclean highway interchange moved to southern site

THE LOCATION of the Maclean service centre for the Pacific Highway upgrade has been moved from the northern to the southern interchange.

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment announced the location of five new service centres proposed along the Pacific Highway upgrade on the North Coast on Friday.

The centre at the Nambucca Heads interchange has been previously announced but one proposed near Woolgoolga will now go to Arrawarra.

Others will be sited off the northbound lanes at the Oxley Highway interchange near Port Macquarie, at the southern Maclean interchange, moving from the proposed northern Maclean interchange, and near the Tweed Valley Way interchange, moving from the northbound Chinderah interchange.

A Departmental spokesperson said these were the safest and most convenient locations.

"It is essential that service centres are provided at properly spaced locations along the highway," the spokesperson said.
