REMOVAL of asbestos on the Sapphire to Woolgoolga section of the Pacific highway Upgrade will continue this week.

The Asbestos was located in an old council water main after it was identified in council records before work began on the project.

Contractors have removed more of the pipe and have set up exclusions zones near the affected sites.

A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the bonded asbestos poses no danger to the public or workers.

"We removed two truckloads of fill from the site this week which included asbestos," the spokesperson said.

"The asbestos will be taken to the Grafton tip, which is licenced by the EPA as a disposal site for this material.

"The asbestos is currently at a secured site within a sign-posted exclusion zone and covered with plastic.

"Its removal is planned for today and Monday."
