Gday Al.

This happened late last week.Feels strange now driving at 100 k's after most of the sections they have been working on at 80 k's.

Very nice piece of road.

I was also talking to an excavator operator working on the Glenugie section. He was telling me that section was supposed to open before the Tyndale/ Maclean section but the wet weather had held them up. Looking south from Tyndale overpass all the road has been linemarked and all barriers completed. Could be any day now til that part is open  :cup:

Yeah it opened last Wednesday, big improvement over the old highway.  Couple of months and more should be getting opened up.

While they continue with geotechnical investigations around the site of the three tunnels around Coffs Harbour a new section of the Woolgoolga to Ballina section has been opened.  From Glenugie to Tyndale linking up with the latest section from Tyndale to Maclean.  Dual lane and 110km/h.  Getting closer.

To think the govt has spend all that money on a new great road only to get to the northern end to find  Qld have put in place concrete barriers to stop all the nice folk from Covidcentral from entering the state

Look forward to travelling it one day.

Qld has concrete barriers..... we've been after these for at least 20 years too.

NSW has the Ruby Princess.

Nuh, they won't be moving the concrete barriers anytime soon.  ;D

On that, there's lot of cars driving around with the "A" border pass stuck on their windscreen, & I'm starting to see a few with 2 passes up ???

Anybody have any idea why you'd have 2 passes ???

The 2nd pass is for the Queenslanders imaginary friend that they have in their head

I still cant understand why it is that the nsw gov didnt/ havent closed our borders  ??? In saying that, why is it that there are Qld rego'd vehicles southbound across the border into NSW with caravans? campers in tow?
Its like its a free for all !! Now, just waiting for the Qld supporters to come back with " your Premier wont close the border".............but, people should have the brains to stay at home and not rely on a border closure to tell them that.

Here, close to home in Yamba there are Qld vehicles with one or two "A"s in their windscreens with even surf boards on the roof heading to the beaches  >:(

You are supposed to have a Quarantine Pass for per vehicle for every person in that vehicle.   If you have two cars and four in the family, then as required each vehicle should have four passes. 

It's a Queersland thing.   


Apart from the first three weeks when only a hand full of vehicle crossing the border at a time, each vehicle was stopped and driver spoken to.  After that the volume of vehicle increased and now they just wave you through as quick as they can.  No checks if there is a Q Pass on display, just drive on through.

Nothing stopping Qlders from leaving Qld.  They can come to NSW get COVID-19 and take it back into Qld free of charge.   

Federal Health Authorities maintain there is NO reason for the Border Closures.   The States somehow know better.   As our Local Member said, we will be ready for the holiday period and happily receive the Tourists to help boost our local Tourism Industry.  Not that Coffs has a Tourism Industry as such.
