Shift to the new highway

MOTORISTS travelling north of Coffs Harbour will deviate for the first time onto the new lanes of the Sapphire to Woolgoolga Pacific Highway upgrade.  

The switch to the new lanes will occur at Moonee Beach and will extend from near Maccues Rd to north of the new bridge over Cunningham's Creek at Moonee Creek.

Roads and Maritime Services says the new arrangement, commencing today, will see traffic flow in one lane in each direction and will be place for the next nine to 12 months, weather permitting.

The swap from the existing highway lanes will enable work to start on the eastern half of the Moonee interchange bridge and the southbound lanes of the upgraded highway.

Access to the highway and Moonee Beach will be maintained through a slight realignment of Moonee Beach Rd.

Traffic management and electronic message signs will be in place to guide traffic.
