To support a growing community and address the congestion along River Street, Ballina Shire Council is continuing plans to duplicate River Street from the Pacific Highway to Kerr Street. Once complete, the four-lane roadway will double the road’s current capacity and cater for traffic up until 2036.
This arterial road project, will include the construction of a new bridge over Fishery Creek, and is a major investment within Council's four-year Delivery Program.

A detailed design for each construction stage will follow completion of the concept plans. This will also provide an opportunity for improvements or amendments to the plans following the community's feedback during this consultation process.
The aim of the concept design is to increase and optimise River Street's traffic carrying capacity and accommodate current and future traffic volumes, while still providing acceptable levels of access to adjacent properties and intersecting streets. A number of intersections need to be modified to facilitate the four-lane design, this includes limiting some access options from adjoining streets.
The concept designs can be viewed below, along with an overview document that summarises each section's proposed works.
