East Street, Crescent Head - proposed roadworks
10 May 2017

Roadworks in East Street, Crescent Head between Rankine Street and Korogora Street are planned to commence on 15 May (weather permitting). The work also involves pavement repairs and resurfacing of the roundabout at Main Street/Reserve Road. The work involves excavation and replacement of failed sections of the road pavement, bitumen sealing, asphalting and associated works. It will require the use of earthmoving plant and trucks and is expected to take three weeks.

During the work vehicle access to properties may be restricted intermittently. There will be significant effects on vehicular traffic, particularly around the roundabout and short delays will be encountered. Traffic control will be in place as required. There should be little effect on pedestrians. Residents are requested to follow instructions from traffic controllers at all times. To avoid delays alternative routes should be considered where possible.

Changed traffic conditions - Smiths Creek Road intersection closure
2 May 2017

Roads & Maritime Services advise that the intersection of Smiths Creek Road and the Pacific Highway will permanently close from early May 2017, weather permitting.

The closure of the intersection at Smiths Creek Road and the highway will allow the northbound on-ramp of the Kundabung interchange and the new northbound carriageway to be completed.

Northbound access to the local roads will be via the Kundabung interchange off-ramp. The exit will be about one kilometre prior to the existing Smiths Creek Road intersection. Electronic message boards and additional signage will be provided to assist motorists. A map is attached showing the planned traffic changes.

Motorists wishing to travel north to Kempsey from this area will detour via Rodeo Drive and Ravenswood Road (old highway alignment) and travel about seven kilometres and re-join the highway.

Bus operations will continue to use the bus stop at the Kundabung Motel on Smiths Creek Road during this time.
