More improvements for Lismore Bangalow Road
28 November 2019
Locals will have smoother, safer and better connections between the Bruxner Highway and the Pacific Highway with road widening and resurfacing taking place, along with the construction of a new overtaking lane.
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads and Infrastructure Chris Gulaptis said the Nationals in Government had committed $17 million to improve safety along Lismore Bangalow Road.
"This is an important stretch of road used by thousands of motorists each day. However, it is single lane in each direction and has a number of bends as well as narrow road shoulders," Mr Gulaptis said.
"We're delivering a comprehensive package of works which will include rebuilding 2.1 kilometres of road north of Eltham Road and installing safety barriers and widening the road shoulders.
"Meanwhile, we will rebuild 3.3 kilometres of road between James Gibson Road and Kirklands lane, with the first stage set to widen road shoulders and improve the alignment along a one kilometre stretch.
"The second stage will see a new 800 metre overtaking lane built between Eureka Road and Kirklands Lane as well as widening road shoulders."
The community update is available to view on the project webpage.
Work is expected to be completed in 2020.
