Pacific Highway re-opened after flood closures

NORTHERN Rivers' residents on the Bruxner Hwy and the Summerland Way might get an uninterrupted night's sleep tonight following the re-opening of the Pacific Hwy at Grafton.

The national highway is now open to all vehicles between Grafton and the Iluka turn-off after being closed due to flooding.

Motorists no longer need to use Summerland Way and the Bruxner Highway to bypass the area.

But the Gwydir Highway remains closed about 70km west of Grafton at Jackadgery due to a landslip.

The Carnarvon Highway is also still closed between Garah and Mungindi.

Motorists are advised to check www.livetraffic.com or call 132 701 before travelling.
