Changed traffic conditions for Tarban Creek Bridge night work
10 March 2015
Roads and Maritime Services advises motorists changed traffic conditions will be in place on the Tarban Creek Bridge for improvement work from Saturday 14 March.
A spokesperson said the work forms part of Roads and Maritime’s $14 million repair project for the bridge, under way since September 2013.
“Tarban Creek Bridge is an iconic structure on Sydney’s Harbour, with an arch spaning around 90 metres along Burns Bay Road from Hunters Hill to Huntleys Point,” the spokesperson said.
“The next stage of the major repair project will involve Roads and Maritime Services installing new steel work above the new southern and northern piers. This work will be carried out at night across seven weekends, weather permitting.
“To minimise traffic disruptions, the work will be carried out on the first weekend from 9pm to 9am on Saturday 14 March, weather permitting.”
The remaining work will be carried out between 9pm to 8am on Friday 20 and 27 March, 10 and 17 April and 1 and 8 May. Work will also be carried out from 9pm to 9am on Saturday 21, 18 March, 11 and 18 April, 2 and 9 May.
The spokesperson said lane closures will be in place while the work is carried out to ensure safety of road users and workers.
“Motorists should allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic controllers, reduced speed limits and all signs.
“Every effort will be made to minimise the impact of work on nearby residents and businesses.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience during this essential improvement work, due for completion in early May.
