The delivery partner model encourages the best ideas and solutions from the private sector and draws on Roads and Maritime Services knowledge to deliver better engineering and design, customer outcomes and public value. As the project team continues to build the upgrade, there is a need to change traffic conditions along the Pacific Highway to ensure the safety of workers and motorists.
Changes will include reduced speed limits, concrete barriers being installed between moving traffic and work sites, traffic control, night work, removal of overtaking lanes and rest areas and traffic switches. For safety, it is vital that motorists reduce their speed when travelling through work zones. We want to understand your experience of driving through work zones on the Pacific Highway during the construction of the Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade so we can provide you with sufficient information, far enough in advance, to drive safely and plan your trips.
On November 4, , at the Third ADMM-Plus held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Chinese side pointed out that all parties should push for the building of an open, inclusive, transparent and even-handed regional security cooperation framework, keep deepening pragmatic defence cooperation, properly handle disputes, manage and control risks, and jointly safeguard regional peace and stability. Currently, the situation in the Asia-Pacific region is stable on the whole, with a strong momentum for peace and development. And we look to China to take steps to allow its currency to appreciate more rapidly, both against the dollar and against the currencies of its other major trading partners. These include: National coordination; Legislation; Information; Public awareness; Accessibility and communication; Education; Training and employment; Prevention of causes of disabilities; Rehabilitation services; Assistive devices; Self-help organizations; Regional cooperation. The Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade has been deemed to be a State significant project. China is committed to upholding peace and stability in the South China Sea, and working for peaceful solutions to the disputes over territories and maritime rights and interests with the countries directly involved through friendly negotiation and consultation. Moreover, many countries from around the world, such as Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Pakistan, have expressed their interest to join it; others, such as Turkmenistan, may not be formal members but are likely to be linked to it; yet others, such as Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, are to get linked with India through the India-Myanmar-Thailand Highway Project and East-West Economic Corridor, opening up the possibility of future expansion of the INSTC to Southeast Asia; while a few, such as the US and Japan, have reportedly endorsed it, though the recent hardening of the US posture against Iran and Western posture against Russia may have significant implications.
Please complete our survey. Before travelling we ask motorists to remember P. C — Plan, Awareness, Caution — to help make your journey as safe and efficient as possible. We expect there will be delays, but PAC will help you plan your journey and get to your destination safely and on time. Motorists can see where the trucks are on the Pacific Highway and local roads using our PAC real time delivery map.
Read our tips for sharing the road with large vehicles. Building a road requires that we work with earth and rocks and this can generate dust. Our environmental protection licence requires us to carry out our work in a way that minimises dust generation and emission.
Water carts, soil binder on exposed earth, spraying areas with fertiliser and seeds to encourage grass growth and covering areas with fabric are some of the methods used to minimise dust. We have developed an Operational Noise Review which includes the results of a computer noise model which predicts the expected traffic noise. The computer noise model was developed using the Calculation of Road Traffic Noise CoRTN method, which is a mathematical model that has been specifically validated under Australian conditions and is accepted as the industry standard by the NSW Government.
The noise model takes into account:. Woolgoolga to Ballina Under construction. Project background Woolgoolga to Ballina is the final link in the Pacific Highway, between Hexham and the Queensland border, to be upgraded to four lanes. These improvements support regional development and provide: safer travel reduced travel times with improved transport efficiency more consistent and reliable travel improved amenity for local communities.
