Record numbers of holiday travellers are expected to head to regional NSW this holiday season and motorists are urged to plan ahead to minimise traffic delays.
Maps of traffic pinch points
As expected over Christmas, North and South coast holiday destinations are predicted to be at capacity and, with overseas travel restrictions, a large number of holiday makers are expected to venture West over the holiday period.
Think about going a little earlier and visit a regional town for a break, a coffee or a meal. We are expecting some heavy traffic and potential delays at the following locations over the holiday season:
North of Sydney
- Tugun Bypass
- Coffs Harbour
- Nelson Bay Rd, Salt Ash
West of Sydney
South of Sydney
- Albion Park
- Princes Hwy Batemans Bay
- Kings Hwy Batemans Bay
- Jervis Bay Rd, Jervis Bay
- Princes Hwy, Jervis Bay
- Braidwood, Kings Hwy (Australia Day only)
