Ballina roundabout improvements get underway

Ballina Shire Council is pleased to announce civil works for the Bangalow Road and Angels Beach Road roundabout will commence on Monday 17 January 2022. In 2021, Council completed service relocations to prepare for the commencement of these civil roadworks.

The upgrade works will be delivered in stages and are expected to be completed by end of July 2022 (weather and site conditions permitting).

The first stage of works will involve the construction of a connection from Sheather Street to Bangalow Road to provide a left in/left out intersection.

All businesses in Sheather Street will continue to operate as per normal during these works. Traffic control will be in place and a 40km speed limit will apply within the roadwork area. Motorists may experience minor delays and are encouraged to seek an alternative route where possible.

Once complete, this project will improve safety, congestion and traffic flow through the Angels Beach Drive and Bangalow Road roundabout.

Key features of this project include:

  • Construction of dual lanes on Bangalow Road between Kerr Street and Angels Beach Drive.
  • A new central median on Bangalow Road. The Bangalow Road/Clark Street intersection will become left in/left out only (no right turn).
  • Providing extended dual lead in/lead out lanes for the Bangalow Road/Angels Beach Drive roundabout northwards on Angels Beach Drive (past Sheather Street) and eastwards on Bangalow Road (to near Moon Street), separated by a median.
  • Extending Sheather Street to intersect with Angels Beach Drive to provide a left in/left out intersection.

Council would like to thank the community for their patience while these works are being completed.
