How should the rules around ‘zombie’ developments be improved?

For the North Coast ‘legacy’ or ‘zombie developments’ have been an ongoing issue with many locals aware of, and part of, community opposition to developments like Iron Gates at Evans Head which the community has been fighting against for more than 30 years. 

All lanes of the Pacific Motorway just north of the Tugan Tunnel have reopened following a truck accident earlier today.

Diversions have been lifted, however northbound lanes will close again later today for tunnel repairs to be conducted.

At this time northbound motorists will be diverted on to the Gold Coast Highway and Stewart Road.

The motorway was closed in both directions due to the truck accident. Emergency services and traffic crews are on site working to recover the truck and clean a diesel spill.
