Summerland Way

Résumé
Summerland Way is a 199–kilometre state route, designated B91, in New South Wales. It runs generally north from Grafton to the state border with Queensland just west of Mount Lindesay, and continues from there into Queensland as Mount Lindesay Highway. It was named as the region in runs through is a popular tourist area for people during summer. Summerland Way is an alternative route to Pacific Highway. It is sealed for its entire length, although some of the road north of Lions Road turn-off is narrow and winding. Summerland Way starts south of the Queensland border to Woodenbong, then heads in a southerly direction through Kyolge, Casino, and Whiporie to eventually reach Grafton on the Clarence River. Summerland Way crossed the river over the original Grafton Bridge, but now does so over the New Grafton Bridge since its opening in 2019. The passing of the Main Roads Act of 1924 through the Parliament of New South Wales provided for the declaration of Main Roads, roads partially funded by the State government through the Main Roads Board (later the Department of Main Roads, and eventually Transport for NSW). Great Northern Highway was declared (as Main Road No. 9) from near Woodenbong to the state border with Queensland (and continuing southwest via Tenterfield, Glen Innes, Tamworth, Singleton, Newcastle, Gosford, Peat's Ferry and Hornsby to North Sydney), Main Road No. 140 was declared from the intersection with Great Northern Highway near Woodenbong, via Kyogle to the intersection with Tenterfield-Lismore Road (today Bruxner Highway) at Casino, and Main Road No. 151 was declared from Casino via Myrtle Creek to the intersection with Gwydir Highway at South Grafton, on the same day, 8 August 1928. With the passing of the Main Roads (Amendment) Act of 1929 to provide for additional declarations of State Highways and Trunk Roads, these were amended to State Highway 9 and Main Roads 140 and 151 on 8 April 1929. Great Northern Highway was renamed New England Highway through New South Wales on 14 March 1933 (continuing southwest via Tenterfield, Glen Innes, Tamworth and Singleton to Hexham).
