Easter roadworks shut down
THE Easter Bunny has come early for Coffs Coast motorists who were faced with sharing the highway with heavy machinery during the long weekend.
The Roads and Traffic Authority says there will be no work on the Sapphire to Woolgoolga upgrade and the Glenugie upgrade further to the north during the Easter break.
No crews will be in place between Good Friday and Wednesday, April 27, inclusive.
Work will resume in earnest on the morning of Thursday, April 28.
But it’s no time to be complacent, and drivers are urged to take extreme caution as they negotiate the roadwork sites at this traditionally busy time of the year.
“Motorists are reminded to drive carefully through work sites,” an RTA spokesman said.
“Roadwork speed limits are enforceable even when no work is being carried out.
“The RTA thanks the community for their cooperation.”
