Bridge improvement work starting in Kyeemagh

Restoration work will start next week on Endeavour Bridge over the Cooks River at Kyeemagh to extend the life of the bridge and reduce future maintenance costs.

“The work is being carried out in three stages and will take about six months to complete,” John Flowers said.

“The first stage will involve sandblasting and repainting the bridge bearings under the bridge.

“The second stage will see the pedestrian handrails along both sides of the bridge replaced and the final stage will replace street lighting along the bridge.

“The NSW Government provided $1.34 million for this improvement work as part of Roads and Maritime Services’ commitment to restore and upgrade bridges in the Rockdale area,” Mr Flowers said.

Stage one work is scheduled to start next Wednesday 3 July and boaters may experience changed conditions in the area including channel closures on the Cooks River until the work is completed in about by December.  

Pedestrians can expect short delays when the blasting is carried out close to the walkway.

Wet weather may change work dates and times.

Every effort will be made to minimise any noise associated with this work.

Pedestrians and water users are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow all signs.

The second stage of work is expected to start in October and some work in the second and third stages will be carried out at night to minimise traffic disruptions on General Holmes Drive.

Details of the changes will be confirmed closer to the start of work.

During the night work there will be minor traffic impacts on General Holmes Drive. Further notification will be provided before RMS starts the second stage of work.
