Delays caused by highway upgrade

THE patience of motorists will be tested this week due to continuing work on the Sapphire to Woolgoolga highway upgrade.

From today until Thursday, 9.30am to 6pm, reduced speeds will be in force for a short length of the highway near Bucca Road to allow site access for trucks.

Up until Wednesday, from 9.30am to 2.30pm, traffic control will be in place to allow tree clearing next to the highway, installation of concrete traffic barriers on the road shoulders and road shoulder repairs.

Between Emerald Beach and Woolgoolga from today until Thursday, 7am to 6pm, traffic control will be in place to allow road shoulder widening, geotechnical investigations next to the highway and underground utility services work.

While this work is being carried out, the road shoulder and an overtaking lane will be closed and motorists may experience short delays.

Between Woolgoolga and Arrawarra tomorrow, from 9.30am to 2.30pm, traffic control will be in place to allow surveying of the road and underground utility services work.

While this work is being carried out, motorists may experience short delays.

“Traffic management will be in place across the project to ensure the safety of workers, motorists and pedestrians,” an RTA spokesman said. “Motorists are asked to drive safely through work sites and observe all speed limits.”
