Another new section of the Pacific Highway has opened to traffic- Eighteen kilometres of the Oxley Highway to Kundabung section.
78% of the 657km Highway is now a four lane divided road.
Already motorists are saving almost two hours on the drive between Hexham and the Queensland border.
This upgrade is already saving lives. The number of fatalities has halved since the upgrade began.
Great work by local federal members David Gillespie, Luke Hartsuyker MP and Kevin Hogan MP.
