Work starts on Macarthur Bridge upgrade on Camden Bypass
Tuesday 1st March 2016
Member for Camden Chris Patterson today announced a million dollar upgrade of the Macarthur Bridge on the Camden Bypass at Camden will start this month.
“The NSW Government has provided $1.2 million for a major repair and rehabilitation of the 1.12 kilometre bridge across the Nepean River which provides motorists with vital links to major arterial roads including the Hume Motorway and M7 Motorway,” Mr Patterson said.
“The strengthening work will be carried out from Sunday 6 March to Friday 6 May and aims to improve the bridge’s structure and minimise future damage to ensure it continues to serve the community into the future.
“The work is expected to take around 30 shifts to complete and will include repairing concrete and applying anti-corrosion coating to create a stronger and safer bridge.
“To reduce the impact on motorists work will be carried out daily from 8pm and 5am, excluding Saturdays, weather permitting.
“The bridge will remain open to traffic while work is carried out with changed conditions in place including lane closures to ensure the safety of workers and road users.
“Road users are asked to follow the direction of traffic controllers, reduced speed limits and traffic signs. “Minor delays are expected and motorists should plan extra travel time for their journeys.
“Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while this important work is carried out.
