Roadworks to watch out for on your highway drive

A HIGH SPEED section of the Bruxner Hwy is a day away from reopening following essential work to stabilise the embankment.

Kyogle Council workers have been restoring an area of the 100km/h road, next to the embankment, that fell away and created a drop off.

The highway in between Mummulgum and Mallanganee has been closed down to one lane with stop/go traffic lights since Friday.

A Kyogle Council spokeswoman said the major part of the roadworks should be completed by the end of tomorrow.

She said once that happens the 24 hour traffic lights will be removed, and traffic will mostly return to normal.

"The lanes will open back up," the spokeswoman said. "But stop and go will continue while (council employees) are working."
