TRAVELLERS on the New England Highway can expect fewer trucks with the Pacific Highway reopened in both directions.
The Pacific Highway was closed in both directions between Kempsey and Frederickton on the state’s Mid North Coast after earlier flooding.
However, there is a reduced speed limit of 60km/h on this section of the Pacific Highway with motorists advised to be cautious.
The Oxley Highway has also reopened between Long Flat and Walcha following a landslip which had closed the road, with motorists also asked to be cautious.
The Lawrence and Ulmarra ferries remain out of service, and there is a 2.5m- width restriction on all vehicles using the Gwydir Highway between Grafton and Glen Innes due to a landslip in late January.
