Girder transport to cause delays on Pacific Highway


Trucking operators using the Pacific Highway in northern NSW face regular delays from September through to November

August 25, 2011

Truck operators scheduling trips on the Pacific Highway in northern NSW face two months of regular delays from early September.

The Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) today warned motorists of minor delays on the highway between Macksville and Banora Point due to the transportation of girders.

The girders will be transported on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday between 1pm and 5pm to the Banora Point upgrade project from September 6 to mid November.

The RTA says there will be six transportations each week. Police will escort the delivery vehicles, which will be carrying 35-metre long girders about 350km.

"Delays are expected, in particular as the girders travel through towns along the highway," the RTA says in a statement.

"Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time, and obey directions from NSW Police and traffic controllers to help with the smooth transportation of the girders."
