The Coast Road set to reopen

The Coast Road is set to reopen to north and south bound traffic from Monday 17 July 2017.

Ballina Shire Council is pleased to announce the final stage of the Skennars Head roundabout construction is almost complete. From Monday 17 July motorist diversions through Skennars Head Road, Headlands Drive and North Creek Road will end.

Traffic control measures along The Coast Road at Skennars Head will be in place while minor works are being finalised, such as landscaping, guard rails and line marking. The speed limit will also be reduced until after the final road lighting is installed. Council anticipates these final works will cause minor delays to motorists.

The Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) identified this intersection as a black spot under their ‘safer roads’ initiative and allocated $2 million to the upgrade.

Council thanks motorists for their patience and understanding during this upgrade. These works have been necessary to make this arterial road and intersection safer for all motorists.
