Woolgoolga to BallinaPacific Highway Upgrade – Sections 3to 6a

Pacific Complete has been engaged to deliver the Woolgoolga to Ballina project which will duplicate about 55 kilometres of existing highway to four lane divided road from about six kilometres north of Woolgoolga (North of Coffs Harbour) to about six kilometres south of Ballina. When complete the project will:

  • Save 13 kilometres in travel distance by reducing overall length from 180 kilometres to about 167 kilometres
  • Reduce travel time from 130 minutes to about 105 minutes saving 25 minutes
  • Allow a higher posted speed limit of up to 110km h
  • Improve travel reliability through better flood immunity fewer incidents and more readily available alternative routes
  • Reduce crash rates by an expected 27 per cent due to divided lanes
