Do you live or work in Mullumbimby, Brunswick Heads or Bangalow?

Bangalow, Brunswick Heads and Mullumbimby have qualified for the NSW Government's Bypassed Town Signage program.

The signs are designed to be positioned on motorways to promote bypassed towns in rural and regional NSW.

They are positioned close to an exit of a motorway and use colour imagery representing the town's tourism or cultural heritage to:

  • Encourage visitation
  • Highlight available services and facilities
  • Encourage rest breaks.

On behalf of the NSW Government, Council is asking for community feedback on proposed photographic images and service symbols for use on the signs.

It is important to note the following:

  • The Bypassed Town Signage program is an initiative of Transport for NSW (TfNSW).
  • There are strict TfNSW guidelines for the signs that are not negotiable.
  • Council will provide the outcomes of the consultation to the State Government.
  • The local Member of Parliament will also be asked to agree on the images.
  • Communities can decide whether they do or do not want the signs.
  • TfNSW will arrange professional photography of the feature image once a decision has been made.

Consultation closes 31 January 2021.
