The NSW Minister for Planning approved the Pacific Highway upgrade at Banora Point on 26 February 2009.
The Banora Point upgrade project was jointly funded by the Australian and NSW governments.
The upgrade extends over approximately 2.5 kilometres from the northern end of Barneys Point bridge to the southern end of the Tweed Heads bypass.
RMS and the alliance would like to thank the community for their patience during the planning, design and construction of the upgrade. The project was opened to traffic in September 2012.
Finishing works including the removal of the project site office and community information centre, completing the shared user path and opening the highway to three lanes south of Barneys Point were completed in October 2012.
