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.

Further information about the project can be found at the Ballina Council website.
