Booyong Bridge - OPEN
Update - now OPEN
Booyong Bridge on Booyong Road at Wilsons River, east of Stewart Lane, was closed on Wednesday afternoon, 29 April.
Motor vehicles will need to find an alternative route.
Recent wet weather and high water flows has resulted in timber debris building at the bridge support structures. Unfortunately the debris has not been fully removed and with the forecasted wet weather ahead, the debris could further build up and affect the bridge.
Byron Shire Council’s infrastructure services director Phil Holloway, said the bridge was being closed due to safety concerns and will be reviewed post weather event.
Traffic controls, signage and barriers are being put in place. Emergency services have been advised.
Council apologises for the inconvenience the bridge closure will cause.
Further updates will be posted on Council's website http://www.byron.nsw.gov.au/road-works
