Kirkwood Rd upgrade almost complete

THE Kirkwood Rd upgrade is almost finished, with Tweed Shire Council removing dozens of concrete barriers on Tuesday night.

Removing the blocks was one of the last major jobs scheduled to occur before the grand opening.

The $17 million project, which has been under construction since May 2011, is expected to provide more efficient traffic flow through the busy Tweed Heads South area.

A recent mass of graffiti painted on the large wall at the upgrade's entry ramp and a small number of resident complaints were the only negatives resulting from the construction.

Traffic on the Pacific Mwy past the construction site should return to normal from January 15 at 10:30am DST, as the speed limit returns to 100kmh from 80kmh.
