HEADING north or south via the Pacific Highway this week?
A number of changed traffic conditions on and around the highway this week have been confirmed.
Changed traffic conditions have been confirmed for this week on the Pacific Motorway at the Tugun Bypass Tunnel, as part of measures to reopen the border between New South Wales and Queensland.
To reduce impact to motorists, all northbound lanes of the tunnel will be closed from 8pm AEDT Tuesday, December 1, to 6am AEDT Wednesday, December 2, weather permitting.
One southbound lane will also be closed while routine maintenance work is carried out.
Northbound traffic will be diverted onto the Gold Coast Highway and Stewart Road during the closure. There is no diversion for southbound traffic.
The tunnel will open to all traffic by 6am AEDT on Wednesday, December 3.
