Traffic is already heavy on the Pacific Highway, especially heading south from the Bluesfest site, with reader David Pettifer sending through this picture of the situation at 8.30am.

The LiveTraffic website warns delays are to be expected heading towards the Ewingsdale interchange, with the situation likely to be replicated at Woodburn in a few hours.

Traffic heading north is considerably lighter at this stage, although with the Commonwealth Games set to start on the Gold Coast tomorrow, northbound lanes are likely to start clogging up later in the day.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
