Expect delays during road works
DELAYS will be experienced on the Pacific Highway between Sapphire and Woolgoolga this week, as construction crews continue the 25-kilometre highway upgrade.
Traffic controllers will be in place until Thursday, as concrete barriers are installed, roadside vegetation is cleared and geotechnical drilling gets under way.
The Roads and Traffic Authority has advised motorists they may experience short delays, while the work is carried out.
Concrete barriers will today be installed on the road shoulders between Korora and Emerald Beach.
Vegetation clearing will also occur and traffic control will be in place until Thursday, operating between 9.30am and 2.30pm.
Drilling will start tomorrow between Emerald Beach and Woolgoolga, and concrete barriers will also be erected.
Traffic control north of Emerald Beach will occur until Thursday, operating between 7am and 5pm.
An RTA spokesperson said traffic management will be in place across the project to ensure the safety of workers, motorists and pedestrians.
