Highway works makes blackspot at Korora safer

A NOTORIOUS Pacific Highway blackspot is now safer thanks to improvement works by Roads and Maritime Services.

A RMS spokesperson announced today motorists can now take advantage of safety improvement work completed at the intersection of the Pacific Highway and Old Coast Road at Korora.

"This is good news for all road users as it will improve safety at the intersection, where six crashes occurred in the past five years," the spokesperson said. 

"Improving this intersection was a priority for RMS to help reduce the crash rate."

The work involved widening the northbound left turning lane into Old Coast Road, modifying the shape of the central medians and realigning the road to match the new medians to make turning out of the road easier and safer.

"Work started in March and was scheduled to be completed by earlier this month but was delayed due to ongoing wet weather in the region.

"This important $350,000 NSW Government funded work is part of RMS' commitment to improving roads in the Coffs Harbour area."
