Intersection Upgrade - Main St and The Avenue, Alstonville

Ballina Shire Council is preparing to upgrade the intersection of Main Street and The Avenue, Alstonville, with works due to commence from Monday 15 April 2024.

Funded by the NSW Government’s Get NSW Active program, this upgrade will provide a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists. New shared paths have already been constructed, which coupled with upcoming works will improve accessibility to the Alstonville CBD and the visual amenity.

The upgrade will include:

  • New pedestrian crossing with street lighting at The Avenue
  • Raised and asphalt road surface
  • New kerb and gutter
  • Stormwater and drainage upgrades
  • Extended median strip along Main Street to improve vehicle turning lines
  • New accessible carparking space
  • Landscaping.

Works will commence in the April school holidays with upgrades to underground services.

What to expect during the April School Holidays:

  • Access to businesses will be maintained. Businesses will be consulted of disruptions to driveway access.
  • The Avenue will be closed at the intersection with Main Street for approximately one week during the April school holidays.
  • Motorists will need to access The Avenue via Daley Street and take a U-turn at the end of The Avenue. Main Street will remain open.
  • Water outages will be required. Impacted businesses will be advised before outages occur.

The next stage of Works will continue through the Winter school holidays (mid-July) and are expected to be completed by late-July 2024 (weather and site conditions permitting).

Details about the next stage of works will be updated on this webpage, Council's Facebook page and Live Traffic.
