Directional signage

The Woolgoolga to Ballina project team has developed a draft directional signage plan to show the location and wording for signs on the new highway (green, blue and brown signs with white writing).

The directional signage plan has been developed in line with Roads and Maritime guidelines to ensure effective and appropriate signposting for key locations along the highway, while also reducing distractions for road users.

We invited community feedback on the draft directional signage plan in May and June 2018. Thank you to everyone who took time to review the plan and provide comments. All feedback received will be considered in finalising the directional signage plan.

The feedback period has now closed, but you can still view the draft directional signage plans using the following links:

The map shown on the draft directional signage plan is indicative only and shows the location of the upgrade, drainage, cut and fill and local access connections.

Community engagement

To develop the draft directional signage plan we consulted with:

  • Local councils
  • Representatives from local business and community groups
  • The Tourist Attraction Signposting Assessment Committee (TASAC).

Meetings were held in early 2018 with focus groups to seek feedback on the draft plan. The focus groups included representatives from business and community chambers along the project corridor as well as local Councils. Meetings have also been held with Clarence Valley, Richmond Valley, Ballina and Lismore councils.

Minutes from the focus group meetings are available to view in the project documents below.

Next steps

We are preparing a consultation report outlining the feedback received and Roads and Maritime’s responses. The report will be made available to view and download on this web page in the coming months.

The directional signage plan will be finalised and submitted to the Department of Planning and Environment in late 2018.
