The Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade has reached another milestone with a second section of new four lane divided road opening yesterday.
Federal Member for Page, Kevin Hogan said the new five kilometre section of road would deliver improved safety and reduced travel times between Glenugie and Ballina.
“It’s great to see the final section of the 657 kilometre duplication starting to open. The Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade will continue to open in stages as new sections are complete and the full upgrade is on track to open in 2020.”
“Non-essential road work between Glenugie and Ballina will stop over the holiday period, for the safety of workers and to reduce congestion, with speed limits to be increased where it is safe to do so,” Mr Hogan said.
“Once the duplication is complete, motorists will experience safer and more reliable journeys.”
The Australian and NSW governments are jointly funding the $4.945 billion Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade on an 80:20 basis.
