The trial is described by the council as a 'quick-win action' from the Byron Arts and Industry Estate Precinct Plan.

Two information sessions are being held for residents wanting to know more about the Pacific Highway Tintenbar to Ewingsdale upgrade.

The meetings will be held next Tuesday 26 June at the A&I Hall, Station Street, Bangalow. The meetings will run from midday to 2.30pm and from 5.30pm to 8pm.

The sessions will give the community an opportunity to meet the project team, discuss the upgrade’s progress, ask questions and provide feedback.

Next week’s sessions will focus on flora and fauna management, waste reuse and recycling, as well as the upgrade of local roads. The project team will also provide an update on work being carried out in the next three months.

The Tintenbar to Ewingsdale upgrade starts at the northern end of the Ballina bypass at Ross Lane and will upgrade the highway to a four-lane divided road to the Ewingsdale interchange.
