Another piece of the Pacific Hwy upgrade ready to open

IT'S almost time to say goodbye forever to 45 minute traffic delays at Bulahdelah.

Next week will see the Pacific Hwy bypass of the quaint riverside town opened in both directions, meaning the traditional holiday bottleneck will become nothing more than a distant memory.

Southbound lanes on the $315million bypass opened for the school holidays earlier this month. The opening of the northbound lanes is just days away.

Such an event will see 3,000 vehicles that drive through the hamlet move onto the new road which runs east of the town.

After the Kempsey and Frederickton bypass opened in Easter, the new piece of road will mean the drive from the North Coast to Hexham is approximately 20 minutes quicker.
