Ross Lane + Byron Bay Road

Ross Lane Roadworks showing Stage One, Two and Three

As part of Transport for NSW's Safer Roads Program, Ballina Shire Council is undertaking a suite of road safety upgrades on Ross Lane and Byron Bay Road to improve safety for motorists and cyclists.

The existing sealed shoulder and clear zone widths (vehicle runoff areas free of obstructions) are less than desirable and have contributed to a poor vehicle collision history on the route.

The works will include:

  • shoulder widening
  • clear zone improvements
  • chevron alignment markers
  • improved curve signage
  • non-skid road surface treatments
  • superelevation curve improvements
  • painted and raised median

Current Works

Stage 1 works are currently underway on Byron Bay Road south of the Ross Lane intersection. 

During this time the following traffic changes will be in place:

  • speed limit will be reduced to 40km/hr in construction zones
  • two-way traffic will be maintained where possible
  • single lane closures will occur during resealing works with traffic controllers in place.

Please allow extra travel time during these works. Council thanks the community for their patience and for following all directional signage.


Stage 1 works are underway and are expected to continue until late 2022 (weather and site conditions permitting).

Stage 2 and 3 are expected to commence late 2022 and be completed in 2023.
