Turners Flat Road, Turners Flat - bridgeworks in progress
Update No. 2 - 11 October 2019

Work to construct a new bridge over the Macleay River at Turners Flat is progressing. The work involves the construction of a new concrete bridge adjacent to the existing timber bridge, construction of road approaches and demolition of the existing bridge. The new bridge will be 144m long, two lanes wide and 1.8m higher than the existing bridge for better service during floods.

Piling for the new bridge is complete and the first half of the concrete deck has been poured. Work is proceeding with the installation of remaining girders and completion of the remainder of the deck expected by mid-November.

The project is being undertaken for Council by Waeger Constructions and will take another ten weeks to complete (subject to favourable weather conditions). When necessary, the bridge and approaches will be under traffic control during normal working hours and short delays may occur. The existing bridge is not expected to be closed for any extended period during construction.

In the interest of safety, during the work a temporary speed limit will be enforced both during and after normal working hours. Motorist are requested to follow instructions from traffic controllers at all time when present.

Council appreciates the cooperation and support of local residents while these important works are carried out. For further information please contact the Customer Service Centre on 6566 3200
