Traffic changes for work at Ewingsdale interchange
MAJOR traffic changes are planned during the next month at the Ewingsdale interchange as work progresses on the $862 million Tintenbar to Ewingsdale Pacific Highway upgrade.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the Ewingsdale interchange is being upgraded as part of the 17 kilometre upgrade jointly funded by the Australian and NSW governments.
"The Ewingsdale interchange is a key component of the upgrade as it is the major connection point for Byron Bay motorists accessing the Pacific Highway," the spokesperson said.
"The Ewingsdale interchange design has been refined in response to community feedback to improve access to the highway from Ewingsdale Road.
"A new northbound ramp has been built to allow right turns from Ewingsdale Road for motorists to head northbound on the Pacific Highway.
"The ramp will be accessible from Tuesday 1 September with the old northbound ramp closed to traffic permanently.
"The old ramp will be removed and landscaped in line with the urban and landscaping design plan for the project.
"Motorists can expect minor traffic delays while night work is carried out overnight Monday 31 August to prepare the interchange for the ramp's opening."
The project is jointly funded by the Australian and NSW governments and is due for completion before the end of this year.
