RTA calls for driver patience
A COMBINATION of roadworks and increased holiday traffic could cause major traffic delays at Banora Point and Tweed Heads South over the next few weeks.
The Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) has announced temporary traffic control would begin today and continue until Sunday, with reduced speed limits and shoulder closures on the Pacific Highway Sexton Hill upgrade.
There will also be northbound lane closures at the Tweed Heads bypass beginning tonight.
“Generally, only minor delays will be experi- enced,” an RTA spokesperson said.
“Except for emergency repairs, no roadwork that may cause traffic delay will be in operation during the peak periods of the school holidays.
“Major traffic delays could however be expected due to increased holiday traffic.”
Signage and vegetation management work will also take place around the South Tweed and Banora Point areas.
The RTA has asked motorists to be patient.
“Traffic delays at these sites will vary and motorists are requested to be patient, observe all warning signs, adhere to directions given by traffic controllers and reduce speed accordingly,” a spokesperson said.
Weather could affect the length of delays.
