Pacific highway speed limited

THE Pacific Highway upgrade from Sapphire to Woolgoolga is charging ahead but that means more changed traffic conditions this week.

Between Korora and Emerald Beach until Thursday, from 9.30am to 2.30pm, tree clearing and installation of concrete barriers will take place next to the highway.

Until Friday, a short length of the northbound overtaking lane at Sapphire will be closed to allow trucks to access the worksite from 7am to 4.30pm.

From 9.30am to 6pm, a reduced speed zone will be in force for a short length of the southbound lane near Bucca Road to allow worksite access for trucks.

From Emerald Beach to Woolgoolga today and tomorrow, 9.30am to 2.30pm, tree clearing will be carried out next to the highway.

Night work is planned between Moonee Beach and Woolgoolga until Thursday between 7pm and 6am for road surface re-sealing and line marking.

“Every attempt will be made to minimise the noise associated with this activity,” an RTA spokesman said.

“Traffic management and a reduced speed limit will be in place where required across the project to ensure the safety of workers, motorists and pedestrians.”
