5pm UPDATE: Yes, the highway queues return

Another day, another Pacific Highway traffic jam.

Well, that was the case earlier today when queues at Kempsey neared 20km for the second day running.

As the afternoon wears on holiday traffic conditions are easing slightly.

However there are still delays at the following locations:

* Macksville - 6.5km - add at least 30 minutes;

* Kempsey - 11km queues - add at least  30 minutes;

Heavy holiday traffic has cleared at Bulahdelah.

Heavy holiday traffic is also expected on the Pacific Highway at Hexham, Macksville, Coffs Harbour to Woolgoolga as well as for motorists heading north out of Sydney using the F3.
