Council advises that construction of a multi-cell concrete box culvert will commence at Five Mile Creek on Beaury Creek Road, Urbenville, mid July 2018.
Works will be undertaken at the existing bridge site with a side track detour in place for the duration of the construction works. All vehicles, including semi-trailers, will be able to use the side track.
Works will be carried out by Tenterfield Shire Council and sub-contractors, the new bridge is expected to be completed by 30 October 2018, weather permitting.
Motorists are expected to obey the directions of any on-site erected signage.
“Council has identified this bridge as requiring urgent replacement”, said Mayor Petty. “With the new financial year, funds were available in the Capital Works budget to undertake this much needed work and prevent the imposition of a 5 tonne limit on the current bridge. Altogether a win, win for the local community”.
