MOTORISTS are being advised to remain patient after bottle-necks again developed on the Pacific Highway at Woodburn and Kempsey around lunchtime.

A 2km traffic queue that built up on the northern approach to Woodburn around 1pm has now cleared.

People heading into Byron Bay from the Pacific Highway at Ewingsdale were facing long delays about 1.15pm as traffic as built up from the police station back to the highway.
