Byron Bay Road, LennoxHead will be closed this Sunday.

Work to extend Hutley Drive and upgrade Byron Bay Road near Lennox Head will lead to the temporary closure of Byron Bay Road this Sunday, 29 March.

Ballina Shire Council (BSC) commenced work in November 2019 to extend Hutley Drive North to Byron Bay Road. Once complete, the extension will provide a safer connection to major roads, reduce vehicle traffic in residential areas and improve access to the shopping centre development and sports fields within the Epiq Estate at Lennox Head,’ said a Ballina Shire Council spokesperson.

The Hutley Drive extension project is progressing well and is now at the stage of upgrading Byron Bay Road and starting to construct the new roundabout and associated infrastructure.

‘To help complete the next stage of these works Council must trench across Byron Bay Road to install stormwater pipes, upgrade the electrical network and remove existing kerb and gutter.’

A temporary detour of Byron Bay Road will be in place from 8am to 4pm on Sunday, 29 March. During this time motorists travelling in both directions will be detoured at the North Creek Road roundabout and at Byron Street.

The works will only proceed if weather conditions remain favourable.

‘Traffic control and variable message boards will be in place to notify motorists of traffic changes. Council thanks motorists for their patience and understanding during these works, said the BSC spokesperson.

Further information on the construction works can be viewed on Council’s website ballina.nsw.gov.au and further information on Ballina Shire road closures and roadwork updates can be found on My Road Info. visit myroadinfo.com.au
