Tamarind Drive and Tintenbar Road Intersection Upgrade

Ballina Shire Council is upgrading the intersection of Tamarind Drive and Tintenbar Road to improve road user safety.

The current T-intersection was designed to cater for traffic volumes and movements associated with the Pacific Highway, with Tamarind Drive North and Tamarind Drive South as the through road. However, since the highway bypass completion traffic has decreased and the dominant flow is now Tamarind Drive North, to and from Tintenbar Road.

The current intersection is complex and has a significant vehicle collision history.

This upgrade will include: 

  • Road widening and new lane along Tamarind Drive North
  • Service relocations (water and stormwater)
  • Vegetation removal (four camphor laurel trees)
  • Road construction
  • Landscaping
  • Signage
  • Lighting
  • Linemarking.

This upgrade will deliver a simplified intersection with Tamarind Drive North as the dominant through road, clear rights of way, improved visibility and line marking, and reduced vehicle speeds through the intersection.

Construction and traffic changes

Motorists should expect the following during construction:

  • Tamarind Drive and Tintenbar Road reduced to one lane with traffic control in place 
  • Speed limit reduced to 40km/h in construction zones.
