Belongil Bridge repairs

Night time works scheduled for Friday 30 June and Saturday 1 July, 2017  (between 6pm and 6am) - at times during these works, one lane of the Bridge and bridge approaches will be closed to traffic. 

Works have commenced on essential repairs to the Belongil Bridge (from 5 June, 2017) for about 12 weeks, weather permitting.

Most of the repair works will take place under the bridge via a temporary suspension platform. Works include:

  • Replacement of corroded concrete bridge joiners
  • Remove and re-coat steel guard rails
  • Repair road surface (new asphalt) and deck joints
  • Replace damaged timber planks on pedestrian walkway
  • Line marking.

To minimise traffic disruption, Council is anticipating that works on top of the bridge will take place at night with a single lane open for traffic. A site compound will be located between the road and the cycleway on the eastern side of the bridge. Some vegetation at the edge of the bridge will need to be trimmed - such are Mangroves - to provide access. Pedestrian and cyclist access will be available. Water users will be able to pass under the bridge but should take note of the signage.
Traffic control and signage will be place.

Council apologises for the disruptions and possible delays during these essential works.
