Maca Castle hasn’t moved but receives new address

IT'S been a long wait, but the Macadamia Castle in Knockrow is finally about to get a new address.

With the renaming of the old Pacific Highway, it will be 419 Hinterland Way, owner Tony Gilding said.

"It only took us six years of requesting details from road authorities and officials," he said.

"Over 50 letters and emails were written and, finally, the Mayor of Ballina David Wright managed to cut through the red tape."

A spokesperson for Roads & Maritime Services said the new name, for the existing Pacific Highway between Tintenbar and Ewingsdale, would be in force by year's end.

"Residents and businesses between the Ross Lane and Ewingsdale interchanges will need to update their addresses," she said.

They will be notified by mail closer to the upgrade's completion.
