Status:

Commencing soon

Delivery Date:

June 2020

What's happening?

We are replacing bridges in Kronkup and Youngs Siding to ensure the long term safety of road users and the protection of properties. Our authorised contractor, Fulton Hogan, is replacing these timber bridges with concrete structures with upgraded guard rails and other improvements where needed.

Where is this happening

The following five bridges will be replaced:

  • Thomas Road, Kronkup – from late March to late May 2020

  • Catt Road, Youngs Siding – from early April to early June 2020

  • Freeborough Road, Youngs Siding – from early April to late June 2020

  • Dawson Road, Youngs Siding – from mid-April to mid-July 2020

  • Morley Road, Youngs Siding – from early April to mid-July 2020

Work hours will be between 6:30 am and 5:00 pm, up to 7 days a week.

What is the impact during construction?

Each bridge will be closed during construction, however, a bypass or alternative access has been arranged with each resident where the bridge is on the only route to a property.

There will be traffic management in place during construction to direct road users safely around the work and detours will be in place where required.

Consultation with appropriate fire and emergency response stakeholders has been undertaken to ensure emergency response is not impacted.

Thomas Road detour

Thomas Road will be closed during construction, however, a detour will be in place to direct traffic down Hunwick South Road and Meanwood Road. Local traffic will be able to enter from either end of the road and access properties up to the bridge.

A gated temporary bypass will be available for emergency vehicle and critical use only. As the site will be unattended out of hours, and because Thomas Road is a connecting road where traffic access cannot be controlled, this bypass will not be accessible for general use.
