Bangalow Road Roundabout

Ballina Shire Council is improving safety, congestion and traffic flow through the roundabout at Angels Beach Drive and Bangalow Road. 

Key features of this project include:

  • Construction of dual lanes on Bangalow Road between Kerr Street and Angels Beach Drive (separated by a central concrete median).
  • A new central median on Bangalow Road. The Bangalow Road/Clark Street intersection will become left in/left out only (no right turn).
  • Providing extended dual lead in/lead out lanes for the Bangalow Road/Angels Beach Drive roundabout northwards on Angels Beach Drive (past Sheather Street) and eastwards on Bangalow Road (to near Moon Street), separated by a median.
  • Extending Sheather Street to intersect with Angels Beach Drive to provide a left in/left out intersection.

Works completed

Road widening works on Angels Beach Drive and the new connection to the industrial estate via Sheather Street are now complete.

Extended dual lead in/lead out lanes and median strip have been constructed travelling northwards on Angels Beach Drive (past Sheather Street).

Sheather Street has been extended to connect with Angels Beach Drive and once opened will be left turn in/left out only (no right turn permitted).

The Sheather Street connection will open to traffic when line-marking and clean-up has been completed.

Bangalow Road, between Moon Street and the Angels Beach Drive/Bangalow Road roundabout, has reopened to two-way traffic.

At this stage, one lane is open in each direction with dual lanes to open in late June once line marking has been completed. 

Works included stormwater renewal, street light installation, road widening and reconstruction to accommodate two lanes each way from Moon Street to the Angels Beach Drive/Bangalow Road Roundabout.

The pedestrian crossing refuge remains closed and pedestrians need to cross at the Kerr Street traffic lights.

Works continuing 

Intersection widening works are continuing on Bangalow Road north, between Kerr Street and the roundabout, where two-way traffic is being maintained.

Dual lanes will be constructed in this section and a new central concrete median. When these works are complete the Bangalow Road/Clark Street intersection will become left in/left out only (no right turn).

Council sincerely thanks local businesses and residents for their ongoing patience as these works are carried out.

The entire project is expected to be completed in July 2022 (weather and site conditions permitting).

During the works residents should expect:

  • Speed limit reduced to 40kmph in construction zones.
  • Temporary pedestrian and cyclist detours in place around work zones.

To alleviate congestion and avoid travel delays please:

  • Allow extra travel time.
  • Avoid non-essential travel during peak morning and afternoon periods.
