Traffic changes for Bluesfest

People travelling by car to the Blues Festival at Tyagarah next week should be aware of changed traffic conditions near the festival site.

From noon next Thursday until 7 am the following Tuesday, the Pacific Highway off-ramp for southbound traffic at the Gulgan Road (old highway) overpass will be closed.

Southbound festival traffic will have to continue to Grays Lane to turn off the highway and double back along the old highway to the festival site.

As well, there will be no right-hand turns to and from the highway at Grays Lane, where parking will be banned during the festival.

Only local traffic will be able to use Grays Lane, and residents driving from the south who want to access it, or Tyagarah Airport, will have to use the Gulgan Road overpass.

The speed limit on the off-ramp at the overpass for people travelling to the festival site from the south will be cut to 40kph.

Parking will be banned in Gulgan Road, Tanner Lane, Foxes Lane and Yarin Lane near the overpass.

Byron Council is urging Mullumbimby residents to use the Brunswick Heads interchange during the festival.

The traffic changes have been made in conjunction with the RTA.
