Drivers groan “not again” as Pac Hwy holiday traffic builds

YOU could almost set your clock to it. The day after New Years and the traffic builds up on the Pacific Hwy causing delays for motorists.

While not as bad as what was experienced in the couple of days after Christmas, drivers are still being required to move along at a snail's pace as they make their way through the Mid North Coast region.

Locally the biggest build up of traffic has been at Woolgoolga where southbound vehicles had to endure a queue 8km in length at its maximum.

The long line has been halved but motorists are still experiencing delays of 15 minutes as they make their way past the driver reviver area at the Clarence and Pullen St roundabout.

Delays of 20 minutes are being experienced at Macksville where drivers travelling south are getting caught in a queue 6km long.

As always the biggest build up of traffic is at Kempsey.

Those travelling south only face a line approximately 2km in length but drivers heading north have to add 45 minutes of travel time to their itinerary as they make their way through a 10km queue.
