With local reports that vehicles have been waiting up to eights hours in queues to get into camping sites, Transport NSW is advising festival goers and local residents that there is heavier than usual traffic around the Yelgun and Gulgan (Tyagarah) interchanges on the Pacific Highway as motorists make their way to Splendour in the Grass.
The festival, held at the North Byron Parklands, kicks off today and runs over the weekend, finishing on Sunday.
Some Ocean Shores parents said their children were stuck at school while they navigated traffic queues on Brunswick Valley Way and Tweed Valley Way, with cars backed up to the Ocean Shores main entrance at Orana Road, and beyond to the Brunswick River.
Motorists might also experience heavier than normal traffic on Monday 25 July as event goers and organisers leave the grounds.
Variable message signs and reduced speed limits will be in place and motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
For more information on getting to the grounds including parking and bus options visit the event website www.splendourinthegrass.com.
Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
