Traffic is currently backed up both coming into and leaving Mullumbimby at the Uncle Toms turn off. Traffic is back up at least two kilometres heading out from Mullumbimby to the Uncle Toms while it is backed up about half a kilometre as you come towards the Uncle Toms turn off from Brunswick and is also slow as you approach froth Byron direction according to road users.
‘There are two sets of road works one between Uncle Toms and Mullumbimby and the other between Uncle Toms and Brunswick Heads that is reducing the traffic to one lane,’ said one road user.
‘The biggest problem is that the two back ups have collided so anyone trying to exit in either direction, to Brunswick or Byron, from the Uncle Tom’s turn off have very little opportunity to turn.’
‘There was a significant amount of traffic coming into Mullum and leaving Mullum for work and the combination of the two sets of road work created significant delays. I would have though it would be better to schedule these road works for a less busy time of day.’
