Section: South Grafton

Looking north to Alipou Creek in South Grafton. Nov 2005.

This flood-prone 4km section of the Pacific Highway covers the length of the highway west of Alipou Creek. The Pacific Hwy itself does not go into Grafton, which is located on the northern side of the Clarence River , instead connecting with the Gwydir Highway and Summerland Way at South Grafton .

As part of the construction of the Wells Crossing-Iluka Upgrade project, which is currently in the early planning phases, South Grafton will be bypassed by some distance. This will eliminate the flooding problems from the highway in this area. A decision on the preferred route is expected in December 2005.
