    Coming onto a very welcome new bypass. This is one which bypasses the small town of Bulehdelah the road to & from was a very steep, winding & extremely dangerous section of the Pacific Highway. Thankfully no more.

    Escarpment above the trees. Looks as though the posts are in place for the wildlife protective fencing to be installed at the top of the bare hill above the road.

    More of the possom lifesaving travelways. There are many more of these now especially on newer sections of the Pacific Highway. Bulehdelah bypass.

    Would love to see possoms actually using these but they are nocturnal critters so these would be more likely to be used then when the possoms are active.

    The Pacific Highway stretching on through the bush. This is either a National Park or a state forest. The advertising sign on the right certainly stands out.

    Nearing the end of our trip north of Sydney along the Pacific Highway to Wingham via Taree where we shall spend the night. One kilometre from the turn-off to Taree & the McDonalds at the service centre. Lunchtime. There had been a recent large bushfire in this area, parts of which can be seen with burnt or singed trees. On the right was the outer fringe of the burnt region.

    Next morning back on the Pacific Highway north of Taree heading home. This is tall timber country.

    Averaging speed safety cameras. Just used on trucks at the moment but there are murmurings they will include cars eventually. They'll be busy then.

    More of the wildlife preservation fencing & another possom highway. These must be successful as more of them are appearing. This one has three entry points from the trees to the pole to which the crossover is attached on both sides of the roads.

    We are now on an 80kph section of the Pacific Highway. No divided highway here although it is probably being constructed near here hence the reduced speed limit.

    It is slow going at 80kph especially when there are vehicles travelling way under the speed limit. Can cause long lines of traffic to bank up when they cannot overtake. A well-laden towed caravan passing a minibus or a motor home on the overtaking lane. That is one for the books. Only a few vehicles will get passed on that overtaking lane. Major frustration for the rest.
