MAINTENANCE WORK TO START ON BRIDGE OVER BEARDY WATERS

Thursday, 11 February 2016

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has today advised motorists that changed traffic conditions will be in place next week for maintenance work on the bridge over Beardy Waters, about 10 kilometres north of Glen Innes on the New England Highway.

Mr Marshall said the $60,000 bridge deck improvement work was funded by the NSW Government to ensure the bridge remained safe and accessible for road users.

“Work will be carried out from Monday, 15 February and take four weeks to complete, weather permitting,” Mr Marshall said.

“One lane will remain open and temporary traffic lights will alternate traffic during daytime work from 7am to 5pm Monday to Friday for the safety of workers and motorists.”

Mr Marshall said motorists may experience delays of up to 10 mins and should plan additional travel time for their journeys.

“Both lanes will be open to traffic at night with a reduced 60km/h speed limit approaching the bridge,” he said.

“I thank motorists for their patience while this essential work is carried out.”
