Woolgoolga to Halfway Creek

Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading 14 kilometres of highway to four lane divided road between Arrawarra interchange and Grays Road at Halfway Creek. The project includes building an interchange at Range Road, twin bridges over Corindi floodplain as well as local access bridges over the highway at Sherwood Creek Road and Kangaroo Trail Road. On the 24 October 2017 10 kilometres of new divided highway opened to traffic between Arrawarra interchange and Range Road interchange. The remaining 4 kilometres is expected to open to traffic in late 2017/early 2018, weather permitting.
