King tides are causing flooding on some local roads around Ballina and are expected to ease over the next two days.
A king tide occurs when there is an alignment of the gravitational pull between the sun and the moon causing the highest tide level.
Where possible, motorists, motorcyclists, pedestrians and cyclists should avoid affected roadways. Motorists are also reminded that saltwater can cause damage to vehicles and body work said Ballina Shire Council in a recent alert.
Roads likely to be affected by king tides and saltwater flooding include:
• Tamar Street, Ballina
• Riverside Drive, West Ballina
• River Street, West Ballina
• Burns Point Ferry Road, West Ballina
• North Creek Road, North Ballina
• Uralba Road, Uralba
• Old Bangalow Road, Tintenbar
• Tamarind Dr, Cumbalum
