Detour alert for truckies using Pacific Motorway at Tweed Heads West


Truckies are advised of changed overnight traffic conditions this week on the Pacific Motorway at Tweed Heads West to install new over-height detectors and signage for the Tugun Bypass Tunnel.

To minimise impact to motorists, work will be carried out from 7pm to 4am on Tuesday, May 7 and Wednesday, May 8, and is expected to be complete by 4am on Thursday, May 9, weather permitting.

The M1 Pacific Motorway will be closed to northbound traffic from Kennedy Drive to Gold Coast Highway, with detours suitable for all vehicles in place via Kennedy Drive (Tweed Heads Exit) onto Sugarwood Drive and rejoining the Gold Coast Highway on-ramp to the M1 Motorway.

A reduced speed limit of 60km/h will be in place during work hours.

Truckies are advised to allow up to five minutes additional travel time for the diversions, drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
