BANGALOW Road is now open between Bexhill and Lagoon Grass near Lismore after being cut by floodwaters for four days.

This will enable residents from Bangalow, Clunes, Bexhill and other towns along Bangalow Rd to drive from Lismore through to the Pacific Hwy.

The Traffic Management Centre is advising motorists using Bangalow Road to exercise caution as there are numerous potholes on the road.

Meanwhile, the Pacific Highway remains closed between Grafton and the Iluka turn-off due to flooding.

Motorists travelling between Grafton and Ballina still need to use the Summerland Way and the Bruxner Highway via Casino.

The Traffic Management Centre estimates this detour will add around an hour to the trip depending on traffic conditions.

The Pacific Highway between Ballina and the Iluka turn off is only accessible to local residents.

The following roads remain closed in both directions due to flooding in the region:

  • The Bruxner Highway between Boggabilla and North Star turn-off.
  • The Gwydir Highway about 70 km west of Grafton at Jackadgery due to a landslip
  • Tweed Valley Way between Leddays Creek Road and the Pacific Highway at Chinderah.
