Looks good. Can’t wait for it to open and the chance to go for a run along it.

That was great!  It would be terrific to get one of these periodically during construction!

Will be good to have this open along with the Raymond Terrace link, and finally get a smooth run up to Gold Coast.

Side note I wonder if the old highway through Coffs will remain a state road and maybe get a B route, or if it will be passed to the council and given a local name (like all other stretches of old Pacific Highway)

The soon-to-be-old highway through Coffs will need a lot of revitalisation, but I would not be surprised if it were given a B-route.

I feel like Coffs has enough local traffic for the old highway to remain a four lane arterial, except maybe the part through the CBD could be a boulevard with parking and a wide green median (similar to Kempsey)

Really enjoyed seeing that, but it does look like a long way until it is finished

It should be remembered with the tunnel sections it will require the usual maintenance closures so any changes needs to keep this in mind as traffic will be diverted back onto the old highway.

Plus placarded loads are prohibited from using tunnels so fuel tankers etc will still need to go through town

Looks good, still so much to do though. Hopefully I will get the chance to go through once it’s open.

Yes, it will take some time. For enthusiasts it is quite nice seeing such an engineering marvel through the Coffs hills. To think you will be able to travel from the Sunshine Coast to Geelong without a traffic light.

The Gympie bypass opens soon too. So it will be further than the Sunny Coast before you get a traffic light. I think it’ll be Colac to Tiaro without a signal.

There are traffic lights at Winchelsea, but you are correct as far as an uninterrupted divided highway is concerned.

Cheers,
Alex.

If Coffs opens in 2027 as scheduled, Heatherbrae will still have lights until sometime in 2028 when Raymond Terrace bp is completed.

Yes, this project will be completed before the M1 extension. That will be the final piece of the puzzle.

OK, I wasn’t aware there was a set of signals there.  Which junction?
