WORKS BEGINS ON HIGHWAY SERVICE CENTRE

Popular with passing drivers, the rest stop on Teven Road in West Ballina is closing, as work on a new highway service centre gets underway.

Plans for the $27-million complex include a petrol station, convenience store, and tourist information centre.

There are some concerns the work could impact on people visiting the area, looking for somewhere to stay, despite camping onsite being illegal.

“It’s actually an illegal parking spot now there’s no amenities here and as a service station it’ll actually have the amenities and maybe there might be some arrangements than.”
