Holiday traffic bottleneck on the Pacific Highway near Byron

The Ewingsdale section of the Pacific Highway near Byron Bay is living up to its reputation as "the mother of all" holiday traffic bottleneck zones.

Live Traffic  NSW is reporting queues stretching up to 5km long and waits of up to 25 minutes in the southbound land of the highway, between Tyagarah and the Byron Bay turnoff at Ewingsdale.

Northbound is slightly less painstaking, with waits of 15 minutes and queues of about 4km. 

Motorists are advised to expect delays....
