    Continuing down the hill. This will, thankfully, be bypassed.

    Roadworks for the bypass near the bottom of the hill. The gleam in the middle of this pic is the morning sun reflecting off the Pacific Ocean.

    Coming to the end of the Tintenbar-Ewingsdale bypass road works. Will very soon return to 110kph speed limit, thank goodness. This is where the Tintenbar-Ewingsdale bypass will join up with the dual lane divided highway. Then it will be a motorway from Ballina NSW to Brisbane in Queensland nearly 200kms.

    The lovely little wildlife bridges which I love. The trees on the top have grown well. There are three of them in this section of the Pacific Highway.

    These images of how the roadworks for the Tintenbar - Ewingsdale bypass are progressing were taken on our trip north to the Gold Coast Airport where we were to catch a plane to travel south to Sydney.

    There are only a few pics as we were going into the rising sun creating glare. Also angles weren't always good to take decent pics. Oh well, that is the problems of trying to take images when in a car travelling at 80-110kph.  :lol2:

    The need for that bypass is obvious & this isn't its normal busy traffic load.

    That is either an avocado or macadamia plantation. Hard to tell the difference at this distance.

    The construction site sheds, in the distance, seems to have created a small village.

    Yes, Granny, for a "flat" country we do have plenty of hills, especially here on the east coast. We are squashed between the Pacific Ocean & the Great Dividing Range which runs down the entire east coast hinterland like a long spine.

    The return trip south on the Pacific Highway. Its great to see how the vegetation has grown & flourished on these wildlife crossings with tunnels underneath.

    Roadworks for the Tintenbar-Ewingsdale bypass. Can't wait for it to be completed.

    A tunnel has been built under that hill which was a banana plantation with trees still growing to the left. No doubt it will be returned to banana growing when construction of the bypass is finished.

      Current date/time is Fri 28 Jul 2017, 2:48 pm
