Another section of bypass opens

PACIFIC Hwy traffic is no longer going through the Teven Interchange roundabout on the Ballina bypass following last Saturday's opening of the northbound Teven Rd bridge.

The moment marks one of the final pieces in the construction of the $640m road, which already has taken 500 trucks and 6500 cars per day from the streets of Ballina.

The final section of the bypass is expected to be finished in April, depending on the weather.

The bypass is jointly funded by the federal and state governments.

Page MP Janelle Saffin and Ballina MP Don Page were both at the official ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the new section of road.

They were joined by Ballina's deputy mayor David Wright and chair of the Ballina Bypass Action Group, Alan Brown.

There is an 80km/h speed limit on the new section of road.
