Pacific Highway General Manager Bob Higgins says an investigation will be conducted into why a b-double truck rolled on a roundabout near the freeway entrance at Teven Road within 24 hours of the new Ballina bypass opening.
Mr Higgins told ABC this morning that ‘at this stage it seems everything was done correctly,’ and that the stretch of road should be safe if vehicles are driven at the correct speed.
The driver of the truck was taken to Ballina Hospital with minor injuries.
The accident was the second in a week in the area, with a petrol tanker rolling at another roundabout 50 metres away on last Monday.
Echonetdaily understands that Roads and Maritime Services undertook full testing of the road, with fully loaded b-doubles negotiating the approach to the bypass prior to it opening.
