Delays for Pacific Hwy run home
TRAFFIC conditions on the M1 coming through Tweed Heads this evening are expected to cause delays as motorists head back north after the Easter long weekend.
Major delays occurred last Thursday afternoon as holiday-makers headed south on the Pacific Hwy
A spokesman for the Transport Management Centre said on Thursday there were heavy delays around Kempsey and Bulahdelah, and up to Tweed Heads as thousands of Queenslanders headed off.
With work continuing on the Banora Point Pacific Hwy Upgrade, it is expected that traffic will bank up at Sexton Hill.
By midday today, motorists were experiencing delays through Tweed Heads.
Anna Forsyth from Brisbane took time out at Tweed Heads for lunch.
"I started out early from Coffs Harbour to avoid the traffic jams," she said.
"It hasn't been too bad.
"But it does get frustrating when you reach the road works and things get a bit stressful.
"Generally people are polite.
"You get the odd person causing trouble and honking.
"I'm hoping to get back to Brisbane in good time.
"I wouldn't want to be coming through Tweed Heads tonight."
The spokesman for the Transport Management Centre said drivers should "exercise caution, expect delays and allow additional travel time."
