Woolgoolga to Ballina is the final link in the Pacific Highway, between Hexham and the Queensland border, to be upgraded to four lanes. The project includes upgrading the highway to motorway (Class M) or arterial (Class A) standard over its 155 kilometre length, nine interchanges, more than 170 bridges and more than 350 connectivity structures. It will bypass South Grafton, Ulmarra, Woodburn, Broadwater and Wardell. The Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade crosses several floodplains and geologically complex regions, including the major Clarence and Richmond river systems.
