Smoother, safer journeys on Gwydir Highway at Glaggy Creek


10 August 2020

Motorists are now enjoying a smoother ride on the Gwydir Highway with improvement work west of Grafton now complete.

Member for Clarence and Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads and Infrastructure Chris Gulaptis said the NSW Government funded the $1.5 million project to rebuild and widen a one-kilometre section of the highway at Flaggy Creek, about 23 kilometres west of Grafton.

"The Gwydir Highway is an important freight and tourism link between the Tablelands and the coast," Mr Gulaptis said.

"It provides access for Tablelands and coastal residents to the popular and World Heritage-listed Gibraltar Range and Washpool national parks.

"Transport for NSW engaged Clarence Valley Council to carry out these improvements, which also involved upgrading drainage, installing guardrails and resealing the road surface.

"This sustained about 20 local jobs from the start of the project in April, with local contractors completing the line marking and guard rail installation by the end of July."
