Roadworks announced for Tweed Coast Road and Darlington Drive


ONE LANE of Tweed Coast Road at Kingscliff will be closed to traffic for three days from Friday, July 7 to Sunday, July 9, as well as Sunday, July 16, as Tweed Shire Council undertakes structural works.

The roadworks will occur from 190m north of the Cudgen Road intersection to 400m south of Crescent Street and will be reduced to one-lane flow for the duration of the works.

Council is urging motorists to find an alternate route to avoid long delays.

In the first three-day lane closure, Council contractors will stabilise the sub-structure of the road before returning the following Sunday to re-asphalt.

The traffic lights at the intersection of Tweed Coast Road and Cudgen Road will remain operational but stop / slow flagmen will be in place to manage any southbound traffic build-up if it occurs.

Signage advising of the roadworks will be posted in advance of the one-lane closure.

“A lot of traffic uses this road so we strongly urge motorists to find an alternate route as flow through this section will be slow during these works,” Council Engineer Cameron Maxwell said.

Banora Point roadworks

Ahead of the work on Tweed Coast Road, stabilisation works will be undertaken on Darlington Drive, Banora Point, with one lane closed for two weeks from next Monday, June 26.

Motorists should expect short delays through the roadworks between Augusta Place and Birnam Avenue.
