Heavy highway traffic slows motorists to a crawl
HEAVY holiday traffic on the Pacific Highway has brought motorists in South Grafton to a crawl this afternoon.
Traffic turning onto the Pacific Highway from the Gwydir Highway was moving slowly this afternoon, backed up to the Bent St/ Gwydir Highway roundabout.
One Grafton resident was frustrated with the situation and felt Roads and Maritime Services should have prepared for the issue ahead of what is always a busy time on the Pacific Highway during the Christmas and New Year's holiday period.
With the Pacific Highway full of tourists and locals enjoying some time off there is a rare break in traffic allowing cars to get onto the road from the Gwydir Highway.
