Trucking operators using the Pacific Highway may need to adjust their scheduling, with the NSW road authority warning of lengthy delays for heavy vehicles later this week.

The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has told operators to prepare for two delays of up to two hours each on the nights of March 24 and 25 near Coffs Harbour on the state’s north coast.

In a statement, the RMS says delays will begin at 8pm and 11pm about 21km north of Coffs Harbour due to the construction of a new overpass.

The RMS says the Pacific Highway and detour for light vehicles around Graham Drive will be closed to semi-trailers and B-doubles.

"Please check electronic variable message signs for advice of the changed arrangements. Traffic management and a reduced speed limit will be in place to the north and south of the work site," the RMS says.

The department says road closures may be imposed on March 26 if adverse weather affects construction work on March 24 and 25.
