A new road and roundabout opened to traffic today in Lennox Head, with the extension of Hutley Drive North to Byron Bay Road.
The new road offers a safer, faster connection for local residents to the beaches and Byron Bay, and improves access to the soon-to-open Epiq shopping centre and nearby sports fields.
Ballina Mayor David Wright said ‘it is great to see this important road network come to fruition. Now complete, the $4 million project will service current and future residential growth.’
The new Hutley Drive extension and roundabout works also include stormwater improvements, new footpaths, lighting and barriers.
Ballina Council used a low noise pavement material in the construction of the new road, as well as sound wall barriers to further reduce noise impacts to local properties.
