Pacific Highway Open but More Rain to Come


The Pacific Highway has re-opened as floodwaters recede on the north coast of New South Wales, but more than a thousand people remain isolated and authorities have warned of more rain ahead.
The highway had been closed for several days near Grafton after a week of wet weather.
Dave Wright from the Traffic Management Centre says the highway was checked by engineers before re-opening just after 10:00am (AEDT).
“There was some repair works that took place to the road’s surface and the road was safe again, which is good news,” he said.
“I believe that the works were somewhat temporary, so the actual surface itself is certainly safe enough to drive on.
“It’s now open in both directions. There’s no speed restrictions through that area, so that’s great news for anyone who is travelling on the Pacific Highway.”
