Bangalow Road Roundabout

Ballina Shire Council has started works to improve 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.

Current works

Works are underway to extend Sheather Street and connect it with Angels Beach Drive.

Intersection widening works are underway along Bangalow Road, between the Angels Beach Drive/Bangalow Road roundabout and Kerr Street. Two-way traffic will be maintained between the Angels Beach Drive/Bangalow Road roundabout and Kerr Street during the widening works.

Road duplication works on Bangalow Road between Moon Street and the roundabout will commence from Monday 4 April 2022. During this time the road will be closed and detours will be in place. Click on the map below for more detail.

These works are expected to continue until July 2022 (weather and site conditions permitting).

During this time the following detours will be in place:

  • To Ballina CBD from Angels Beach Drive: Right turn at the roundabout and left onto Kerr Street, access to Ballina Central Shopping Centre remains unchanged
  • To Ballina CBD from Tamarind Drive: Right turn at Kerr Street
  • To Lennox Head: Detour via Fox and Kerr Streets, or use The Coast Road via East Ballina 
  • To North Ballina/Airport from Bangalow Road: Detour via Fox and Kerr Streets
  • Speed limit will be reduced to 40kmph in construction zones.
  • Temporary pedestrian and cyclist detours will be 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.
