Highway projects hits the home straight

THE Sapphire to Woolgoolga Pacific Hwy upgrade has reached its final stage of construction with the uninterrupted dual carriageway to open to full traffic north of Coffs Harbour in a matter of weeks.

Motorists are expected to notice some morning and afternoon congestion this week, as low noise pavement is laid on the northbound highway, south of Skinners

Creek near Moonee Beach.

Roads and Maritime Services has advised that traffic will flow in one lane in each direction on the southbound highway.

The changes, which are dependent on weather and could start from today, will see the Moonee Beach interchange northbound on-ramp and a 4.5km section of the northbound highway temporarily closed.

Once this work is completed the Moonee Beach interchange southbound off-ramp and a 4.5km section of the southbound highway will be temporarily closed.

This will see low noise pavement laid over the southbound lanes.
