Roads and Traffic Authority asks for comments about bypass signs

22 August 2011

The Roads and Traffic Authority is asking for community comment about proposed directional signs for the Ballina bypass.

“Road signs are an important way of informing motorists how to access nearby towns and major destinations from the highway,” a Roads and Traffic Authority spokesperson said.

“They are equally important to local communities, who want to make sure highway traffic can easily find its way to the towns.

“The signs included in the proposal include directional signs to Ballina and Tintenbar for the Cumbalum interchange and major destination signs on the highway,” the spokesperson said.

The proposed signs are on display for public comment until Friday 2 September at:

  • Ballina Shire Council
    corner of Cherry and Tamar streets, Ballina
    Weekdays from 9am to 4pm
  • Ballina Bypass Alliance community information centre
    corner of Teven Road and the Pacific Highway, West Ballina
    Weekdays from 8am to 5pm

The plans for the signs are also available online from the Ballina bypass project webpage, follow the links from

Comments about the proposed signs can be submitted in person at the display locations or sent by post to PO Box 303, Ballina NSW 2478, or by email to Comments must be received by Friday 2 September.

The signs will be installed before the bypass section of the upgrade, from Teven Road to Cumbalum, opens in December 2011.
