Project information


The NSW Government is investing up to $20 million over the next three years to deliver a number of road safety improvements on Big River Way between Glenugie and Tyndale. This significant investment will include rebuilding sections of the road surface which have been damaged, to provide a smoother travel journey.

We have developed a Safer Asset Strategy that sets out the priorities for safety improvements and upgrades for this road over the next few years. This section of highway, between Glenugie and Tyndale, will remain a State road and receive regular maintenance as part of Transport for NSW’s routine maintenance schedule.

Improving the local road network

The Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade has resulted in changes to the local road network in the Clarence Valley region. The old highway between Glenugie and Tyndale has carried a significant volume of traffic over the years.

The Safer Assets Strategy has been developed to reduce ongoing maintenance and identify the most appropriate treatments to improve a number of intersections and safety along the road. The proposal is aimed to improve the road and provide a safer, efficient and reliable journey to road users.
