Taking slower road at Banora Point

TEMPORARY Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) traffic control measures are in place over a 4km stretch of the Pacific Highway around Banora Point.

The controls will be in place until Sunday and involve reduced speed limits, road shoulder closures as well as complete stoppages early tomorrow between 2-3am.

Motorists should give themselves an additional 15 minutes travel time.

These stoppages are timed so as not to affect heavy traffic flow.

Pacific Highway lane closures along the Banora Point construction area will remain in place between 7pm tonight and 6am tomorrow.

The RTA said only minor delays will be experienced and, except for emergency repairs, no roadwork should cause traffic delays during the peak periods of the school holidays.

For NSW, term one ends on Friday and term two starts on April 26.

For Queensland pupils, term one ends on April 15, with school resuming for term two on April 26.

Traffic delays at Banora Point will vary and motorists are requested to be patient, observe all warning signs, reduce speed accordingly and follow directions given by traffic controllers.
