Pity the poor holiday makers trying to return home through Nowra. 24km traffic crawl yesterday south of Nowra. Glad I stayed home. Just 3 sets of traffic lights caused this near the bridge. You would thing that the cops or RTA would control the flow rather than leaving the traffic to fight and crawl.

Cheers

Passed through Nowra a couple of days before New Year. Took close to 2 hours to get through. They really have the silliest road system there. Definitely not the Clever Country there.


Cheers

Same here outside Brisbane, coming back from the Sunshine Coast.
Reportedly 3 hours for a 1 hour trip.

I was listening to the radio while I was working. Wouldn't have minded being stuck in traffic rather than working. :o)

Have a good time?

See, the weather stayed fine because we didn't go :o)

Thanks for the offer to.

Work is in walking distance of home. Only time we used the car was to go the the hardware shop and church.
Got the bathroom tiles up in the shower, which is good.
Only worked about 12 hours over Easter to catch up on a couple of jobs.

Planning to make our own long weekend later.

We returned to Nowra from Mallacoota yesterday. The traffic jams started at Moruya. It took us an hour to travel 15 km's from the Mad mile sth of batemans bay to the bay bridge. No troubles at Ulladulla, but from theSussex Inlet turn off it was a parking station. We got to Turrpy Road and came in the back way. All in all 7.5 hours from Mallacoota, this included a couple of scooby stops for the dog. I found the biggest problem was the merging lanes. Once passed these the traffic flowed smoothly again until the next one.
Memo to self: next Easter stay home!

Oh well, if people are silly enough to tear off for a couple of days at Easter like all the other lemmings, they get to enjoy the return trip as well :)))

Just have to be smarter than the average lemming and make sure your not on the road at peak times, or even better take the Tuesday off and have an extended easter.

I hit Nowra at about 9am on Monday after Easter down at Bodalla. It wasn't too bad then but just starting to build up. Other than that, it was a good run back to the big smoke.
